A fun time marred somewhat by cost.

The quality of the fair varies year to year but it is usually a pretty fun time. There are a lot of shows to take in and you can lose yourself in the costumed crowd. I almost... read more

The quality of the fair varies year to year but it is usually a pretty fun time. There are a lot of shows to take in and you can lose yourself in the costumed crowd. I almost always enjoy myself when I go however it all comes with some caveats that prevent me from rating this above average. Cost cost... More

We visited King Richard's Faire. We found that the entrance fee of $31 was just for that. To enter the Faire. They nickel and dime you for everything. The shows all pass a hat after each show for a donation. The food is incredibly expensive. You are not allowed to bring in your own food and drink. And you are... More

I've been to a few Renaissance fairs. I used to go to the PA Ren Faire annually when I lived in the area so when I moved to New England I was excited to go to the King Richard's Faire. It was not what I was expecting at all. From getting tickets, to buying food, to being trapped in the... More

Went today with my friend, and met my daughter, my granddaughter (5) and my son and his girlfriend. After 20 years of the Faire there's not a lot of new to report...I did think the food seemed fresher, the cinnamon buns are to die for, the bread bowls looked nice, and the people were suitably weird. Getting there early as... More

The price of admission is already high, and when you get in, almost everything cost money. We were able to catch the "Squire on the Wire" show, but everything else was too crowded. My son went on through the maze twice, $6. My kids were able to dress up in a costume and sit on a wooden horse for us... More

Although the location was great, easy to get to, and very authentic, be prepared to empty your pockets. It's $31 for adults to get in (no credit cards allowed - ATM on grounds meaning extra fees). If you buy tickets online there's a $2 surcharge. There are events on 3 different stages that are included in the ticket price. But... More

Enjoy the costumes and wear one yourself if one day a year is not good enough for you. The atmosphere lends it self for you to let it go! I have been attending this faire for years and know that it will take some $$$ to get a good day out of this. The entrance fee is not cheap, but... More

Being in the woods is perfect, great little shops and fun shows. It is PRICEY, cannot lie about that. The food and drinks are expensive. I love to get a... More

Visited here with my family whilst on vacation. Fortunately I didn't pay for entry as family had already paid for me in advance. I certainly wouldn't have paid the prices advertised. Out of choice this wouldn't be a venue I would go to on my visit to the US . Being from England we're used to the genuine article when... More
