A lot of fun with all the interpreters. However, it is expensive to get in and the refreshments and other stuff are ridiculously expensive.

The King Richards Faire is a disappointing middle-age fair that seems to be mostly visited by cosplayers. For them it might be fun, but if you're there for the shows, you'll be disappointed after paying the high entry fee. I've been to other fairs for...More

We went to King Richard's Faire in September. Plan on a whole day. We were at the opening ceremony which was quite nice. The jousting was really good. The food is quite expensive. You have to buy tickets for the food. The food was okay....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,...More

I agree with the above comments. Not much auxiliary seating. Benches at the stages fill quickly. I had to stand to see several of the performances. Might be a good idea to bring a blanket and find a seat on the ground.
