Entertainment, exciting rides and skilled games abound on the enchanting 80-acre site of King Richard’s Faire. Hundreds of talented entertainers perform non-stop throughout the day. Visit any of our eight vibrant stages, tournament field or Mud Pit Stage and be enthralled by acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, heart pounding music, comedy acts, fire eaters, and puppeteers!

You’ll gasp as the King’s mounted knights battle on horseback, and laugh as bawdy beggars compete in mud. Strolling performers will engage you all day long as you frolic in our forest and try your skill at our Gaming Glen.

Epicurean pleasures will tantalize your taste buds with the Faire’s unbelievable choices of truly scrumptious treats. Satiate your palate with spit-roasted giant turkey legs, giant ears of corn, boules of chowder and stew, ringlets of fryes, specialty cocktails, champagne, mead, wine, and brew!

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 forges and weapons makers, paintings, hand-spun pottery, sword making, fabulous jewelry, leather and armor, period clothing, moccasins, perfumes and scented oils, face painting, and psychic readings.
