This post is Sponsored by King Richard’s Faire but my opinions are 100% my own!
I’m so excited to bring to you a King Richard’s Faire (Carver Massachusetts) Family 4 Pack Giveaway!! We are heading there next weekend and can’t wait to go. Even though I’ve lived here pretty much all my life, I’ve never been to King Richard’s Faire so I’m very excited to bring the girls. My husband started talking about it a few weeks ago and we told the girls last night that we’d be going and they are very excited, even though they don’t really fully understand what it is, but we know they’ll love it.
If you aren’t familiar with King Richard’s Faire, it’s New England’s largest and longest-running Renaissance Festival. It opened its 2013 season on August 31st and runs weekends and Monday holidays through October 20, 2013. It’s tucked away on 80 acres of enchanted forest in Carver, MA and King Richard’s Faire is a full day of live, interactive entertainment for all ages and is open from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on weekends and Monday holidays (Labor Day, Columbus Day).
What can you do there?
Guests are invited to watch the King’s daring knights joust on horseback, hear live musical acts, watch theatrical performances and mingle with mischievous and talented strolling performers all day long. For the adventurous young and old, guests can try their hand at a bow and arrow, axes or other games of skill in the Faire’s Gaming Glen, get their tarot cards or palms read, get chosen to participate in a stage performance, or simply pick up a great new accent to impress friends.
Is there Food?
Faire cooks will tantalize taste buds with scrumptious treats, including spit-roasted giant turkey legs, boules of chowder and stew, ringlets of fryes, sandwiches, soups and salads, champagne, wine, cider and brew.
Are there Crafts?
Discover over 100 talented artisans who journey from all over the country to display and hawk their magnificent wares. You will be delighted and intrigued by the fantastic glass blowing, portrait painting, hand-spun pottery, sword making, fabulous jewelry, leather and armor, period clothing, moccasins, perfumes and scented oils, face painting, and psychic readings.
Every Saturday at 4 p.m. on the King’s Stage, guests enjoy an extra special event with a different theme each weekend, from romantic vow renewal ceremonies an adorable prince and princess showcases to the crowd-pleasing cleavage contest and “royal ink” tattoo competition, all contests are open to public participation with great prizes offered for each event.
