I have been wanting to go to King Richard's for years. I finally get the chance to go this year. We had already been planning on going with our three kids and I happened to find a Living Social deal and got a decent discount on the price. Which was great. However, when we got there I was not expecting... More

This was quite an experiencing of jousting, if you do not know the meaning of Jousting or to be jousted you will find out after the event is over. There was some occasional rudeness by the staff members but that must be all in the fun of the experience. Things were quite expensive and the acts on stages were always... More

We visited King Richard's Faire while in the Plymouth, MA area recently and had a wonderful time. The POURING rain all day didn't dampen our enthusiasm for the shows, participants, food or vendors. We did or watched it all - psychic reading, jousting contest, Jack-the-whipper, adult costume contest, turkey legs, lots of beer and more! There are some very, ahem,... More

The reviews on this were very mixed and I went in having an idea of what to expect. I knew this fair would be expensive. Knowing that, it made it hard for me to enjoy. Buying tickets online does not save you money, that will cost you an additional 2 dollars. So buyer beware, save your cash and use it... More

I've been several times, and have enjoyed each visit. Set in the "forest", you get a taste of Renaissance fun and frolic. Down side is the price. Way over priced on many items. Still all in all, a great escape. Faire is open from Labor Day weekend to the end of October.

I have been returning to KRF for many years now and it is a fun place for older children and adults to go. There is lots to do with various forms of entertainment (jousting, dancing, performance arts, acrobatics, etc.) and artisan shops of many medieval variety. The one con about the place is that it is fairly expensive to get... More

This place has gone downhill and the prices have skyrocketed. If you want to pay $31 to get in the door - that allows you access to all of the shows who expect tips on top of the entrance fee - then you are ready for the KRF experience. Next - let's enjoy some food. $12 for a turkey leg;... More

First time returning to KRF in six years, and the consistency of the entertainment has mostly stayed the same. Entertaining shows and semi-corny jousting that is sure to amuse children or the slightly intoxicated. As mentioned in other reviews, you can expect to pay a pretty penny for entrance and expect to get nickel and dimed for food, games and... More

Not really for young kids...although we did get lucky enough to be there when the jousting and sword fighting on horseback took place. Very odd crowd...lots of people in costume taking it very seriously...drinking beer out of mugs, etc. The crowd covered in tattoos and body piercings. (not that there's anything wrong with that...but just not my cup of tea).... More

Everything seems designed to get you to spend money, 31 for entrance, and only able to buy food/drink with tickets that you have to buy, which inevitably leads you to either overconsume or waste a few dollars worth of tickets at the end of the day. We tried giving our leftover food ticket to the lady working the food booth... More
