King Richard's Faire.

King Richard's Faire

Nestled in the woods of "Carvershire" (Carver), King Richard's Faire is New England's oldest and longest-running Renaissance festival. Family-friendly and certainly wacky, it's a great place to escape reality and play in the woods. This year's festival runs weekends and Monday holidays from September 1st through October 21, 2018. Eight stages of live entertainment, games and rides, artisans, food and "drynk" -- and a jousting field.
