King Richard’s Faire opens 41st season on September 3rd as New England’s largest and longest-running Renaissance festival in Carver, Mass.
41st season runs weekends September 3-October 23, 2022 including Labor Day and Columbus Day Monday Holidays
This fall, New England’s largest and longest-running Renaissance Faire is ready to open wide the gates starting Saturday, September 3rd, and running weekends and Monday holidays through October 23rd on the Faire’s enchanting 80-acre wooded site (235 Main Street, Carver, Mass. 02330). Faire hours are 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.
For the 41st season, King Richard’s Faire offers the region’s best live entertainment, including eight stages featuring hundreds of local and national performers along with exciting rides and games for a full day of “escaping YOUR reality”. Guests will be dazzled by acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, fire-eaters, minstrels, dancers, and puppeteers, as well as brave knights battling three times daily on the joust field, and bawdy beggars competing in mud. Frolicking faeries can be seen dancing through the forest, where wee ones can ride a pony or unicorn and watch royal dogs perform tricks. Throughout King Richard’s Faire, happy villagers help attendees escape into a fantastical, whimsical world of interactive theater, unlike any other theatrical attraction.
NEW for 2022: This season, the festival is bigger and better than ever with the addition of new entertainers, artisans, and original Broadway-style musical comedy for all ages. New entertainers include Sir Danny Drake, juggling fire and blade; the iconic El Zappo, real-life father to long-time performer and recent America’s Got Talent performer Jacques Ze Whipper; Pict Pipers (pipe & drums); and a succession of fabulous dog acts Magical Poodles (9/3-25) and Muttsville Comix (10/1-23), and Braveheart Beasts, an amazing horse show (9/24-25, 10/25-26). South Shore cast member Sebastian Espinosa joins the musical scenario cast, and fan favorite Ryan Hanley returns in a new comedic role as Town Crier.
The Faire also welcomes new skilled craftsmen and artisans to its lineup of nearly 100 shops: Vignette Graphica artwork, Dragon’s Den candles, Hex Pottery, Skapa Leather, Sudsy Sow Soap Shoppe, Sara Breslin Illustration and Portraiture, Ember Craft Creations, Whistle n’ Learn clay flutes and dancing wings, Fire and Brimstone Pottery, Winged Motivation fantasy leather, and Armor Smith weaponry. Whether new to the Faire or long-time favorites, King Richard’s Faire is brimming with one-of-a-kind treasures. Enjoy original paintings and prints, handmade jewelry, period clothing and leather accessories, armor and weaponry, woodwork, glass and crystal creations and much more. Fantasy lovers will enjoy elf ears, horns and fairy wings, floral hair garlands and fantastical facepainters. Lovers of old-world craftsmanship will enjoy the Faire’s blacksmiths, potters, candlemakers, and apothecaries as well as intuitive fortune tellers.
Fine food also shares the spotlight at King Richard’s Faire. Hungry guests may enjoy epicurean pleasures suited for the whole royal family, from giant spit-roasted turkey legs, ringlets of fryes, boules of chowder or stew, onion blossoms and dragon wings, and many more delicious delicacies (including gluten-free, vegetarian and lactose-free options).
