This fall, New England’s largest and longest running Renaissance Faire is ready to open its gates, starting Saturday, September 4th for its 40th anniversary season.
Running until October 24, the King Richard’s Faire offers tons of activities for families such as rides, games, acrobats, aerialists, jugglers, fire-eaters, dancers, puppeteers as well as talented performers who perform on eight stages. Frolicking faeries can be seen dancing through the forest, where guests of all skill levels can compete in his majesty’s Gaming Glen while wacky wenches and happy villagers help Faire attendees escape into a fantastical, whimsical world.
New performers for 2021: King Richard’s Faire welcome “The Captain’s Canines”, a specialty dog act with amazing feats of skill which will tickle the dog bone; The Unicycling Unicorn, a talented juggler who can juggle while sitting 14 feet in up in the air on one wheel; El Zappo, zany circus comedy; Kilted Colin with juggling acrobatics and bagpiping; the Picts Pipers offering Highland Tribal music (9/4-10/3), and the “Unspun Tails” aerial show.
Returning acts include the joust and Hammyln Hyper Piper, The Sturdy Beggars “The Mud Show”, Jacques Ze Whippeur and his dashing danger and whip stunts, The Torture Show, the Washing Well Wenches, the Wonder Show (magic), Meraki Caravan (10/9-24) and of course, King Richard’s Faire’s own spectacular original musical in two acts on the King’s Stage at 1:00 and 3:30 p.m.
Guests will also 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). Guests may quench thy thirst at any one of eight locations throughout the realm, whether they prefer champagne, specialty cocktails, wine, hard cider, mead, or beer. For sweet treats, Faire fans can choose from baked goods to ice cream treats, including Root Beere Floats and Brownie Sundaes.
