King Richard's Faire reviews
Can't recommend this place enough!! Went here for the first time with my friends for my birthday and we all had a blast! The atmosphere was amazing and the staff there were all very kind and in character so it just added to the immersion. I would bring extra cash on hand or be sure to save up a bit when you go since you'll find something you love at every vendor and want to buy like I did 😅 I believe all the vendors there hand make their stuff so it's all high quality and so worth it! Can't wait to go next year and check out the other theme weekends!!!
Overall it was a great experience, loved just walking around and relaxing. As others have mentioned the lines and cost for food are both high, hopefully next year its possible to get more staff. It would be nice to have a better system for getting cash from ATM when at the gate, having to give away my drivers license even just for a bit is a little unnerving. That being said, the only thing I would want to do next year is show up early to avoid the traffic mid afternoon (took 2 hours to do 30 min trip). The jousting was especially good, the best I have seen anywhere.
