King Richard's Faire, New England's largest and longest-running Renaissance Faire, announces its 2015 season, to run September 5 through October 25, 2015 on weekends and Monday holidays (Labor Day, Columbus Day). Tucked away on 80 acres of enchanted forest off Rt. 58 in Carver, Mass., King Richard's Faire announces its 34th season offering guests a full day of live, interactive entertainment for all ages. Guests will enjoy daring knights jousting on horseback and eight stages filled with song and dance, stunts and storytelling. Every Saturday afternoon, the King's Stage offers themed contests and events to add variety to the festival-like entertainment lineup (see kingrichardsfaire.net for details).
Guests can mingle with the King and his royal court, noble and not-so-noble subjects and skilled performers. When as famished as a
mud beggar, enjoy the Faire's delicious spit-roasted turkey legs, buttery ears of corn, boules filled with chowder and stew, ringlets of fries, and quench thirst with champagne, wine and brew. Shoppers can stroll through the 16th century village filled with the wares of more than 100 unique and talented artisans, including New England artists. At every turn, guests will encounter fantasy and wonder through minstrels, musicians, acrobats, stilt walkers, giant puppets, wenches, and more.
