My turkey leg

We are a couple weeks out from the season opening of King Richard’s Faire. As a family we have been hosted to visit Carvershire for the past 6 years. It is one of the most fun days of the year. The family loves seeing all the great acts and eating the fun food like huge turkey legs! It is an awesome day filled with fun and humor and really nice people. The kids have had some of the best experiences there. One of the most memorable moments was The Roaming Drummer who let Andrew play on his drum. Andrew was almost 2 years old at the time and he was having a fit because we confined him to the stroller. It was also a long day and he was tired. It is the people who are at the Faire who make it the best time ever. We cannot wait to go back.

And we want you to come with us!!!!

I have 3 Family 4-Packs of Tickets to give away this year for Opening Weekend September 2-4. We will be there on Labor Day this year. If you want to join us the just enter through the Rafflecopter App Below.

Gates open September 2, 2017
King Richard’s Faire, New England’s largest and longest-running Renaissance Faire, announces its 36th season running weekends including Labor Day and Columbus Day Mondays, September 2 through October 22, 2017. Tucked away on 80 acres of enchanted forest off Rt. 58 in Carver, Mass., the Faire offers a full day of live, interactive entertainment for all ages. Enjoy daring knights jousting on horseback, exciting rides and games of skill, an original musical, and hundreds of talented entertainers on eight stages. Dancers, singers, acrobats, exotic animals, wacky wenches, happy villagers, and the King’s royal court greet you as you enter the gates.
When as famished as a mud beggar, guests will enjoy the Faire’s delicious spit-roasted turkey legs, buttery ears of corn, boules filled with chowder and stew, ringlets of fries, and quench their thirst with champagne, wine and brew. Shoppers can stroll through the 16th century village filled with the wares of more than 100 unique and talented artisans from near and far. At every turn, guests will encounter fantasy and wonder through minstrels, musicians, acrobats, stilt walkers, giant puppets, wenches, and more.
