Harvest Faire is a modern interpretation of a late 15th century European fall harvest celebration and tournament. Entertainers and a market mix with the sounds of good-natured martial competition and the smells of period cooking. Watch a craftsperson plying their trade, try your hand at games of chance and skill, and cheer for the warrior of your choice at the Field of Honors and in Knightly Competitions.
Great time to break out your cooler weather garb. Who knows, maybe we’ll … see you at Faire!
If you’re heading for King Richard’s Faire this year, it’s never too early to start planning. They wanted to make sure you had the information you needed, so sent us the following. Check out what they’ve got planned:
King Richard’s Faire, New England’s largest and longest-running Renaissance Festival, opens its 2012 season on September 1 and runs through October 21, 2012 on weekends and Monday holidays (Labor Day, Columbus Day). Tucked away on 80 acres of beautiful, enchanted forest off Rt. 58, King Richard’s Faire is a full day of live, interactive entertainment for all ages, including exotic tigers and a rare liger, daring knights jousting on horseback, and eight stages filled with song and dance. Every Saturday, themed events add variety to the festival-like entertainment lineup (see www.kingrichardsfaire.net for special Saturday schedule). The Faire address is 235 Main Street, Carver, Mass. 02330, phone is 508-866-5391. Massachusetts
Guests can mingle with royal subjects and performers, and tantalize their taste buds with the Faire’s delicious spit-roasted turkey legs, buttery ears of corn, boules filled with chowder and stew, ringlets of fries, champagne, wine and brew. Shoppers can stroll through the 16th century village filled with the wares of more than 100 unique and talented artisans. At every turn, guests will encounter minstrels, musicians, acrobats, stilt walkers, giant life-size puppets, mud beggars and more special surprises.
Tickets are $27 for adults (12+) and $15 for children ages 4-11. Children under 4 are free and parking is free. Discounts given to groups of 25 adults or more, reservations required by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
