Held on 80 acres in Carver MA since 1982, King Richard’s Faire is the largest and longest running Renaissance faire in New England. It runs for eight consecutive weekends from the first weekend in September through October. The recreated 16th village features a marketplace and ten stages of musicians, jugglers, mimes, gymnasts, and other performers. The king’s royal court also presides over contests of jousting knights at regular intervals as onlookers chow down on mead and giant turkey legs.
