Today we went to King Richard’s Faire. We were guests of the realm as we have been for the past 10+ years. this has been a family tradition for so long. We get press passes to come to the faire as a family and we have such an amazing time each trip. This year there were some new attractions but there were also some of our old favorites. We never miss the Jacques Ze Whipper show. We also make sure that we watch both parts of the musical the is created every single year. The parody songs are incredible and the cast is fantastic. We also make sure that we see our many friends around the realm.

Jacques Show

We got to the Faire and we sat for a photo with Kind Richard the 11th. Our friend Julie took the photo and I will share that once it is published.

We then walked through a few shops and I picked up $100 worth of food tickets (we ended up needing $110 total for the four of us to get lunches, drinks and a snack at the end of the day). Prices are high but you should expect that going in and make sure that you bring cash. I was lucky that I sold Andy’s bunk bed and that I found an old lockbox with $1 and $5 bills in it so we could tip the performers. Make sure that you bring cash to tip the performers. This is their living and they work very hard at it.


Our first show as Jacques Ze Whipper and Andy got into the show and helped Jacques by throwing a ferocious animal to him so that he could whip it in mid air. Andy is dressed in their “human Rayla” costume. The shirt says, “I like bread and complaining” which is a line from the show The Dragon Prince when Rayla a Moon Shadow elf tries to pass herself off as a human doing human things. Andy thought that was funny and made the last minute costume and called themselves “Bread Man!” to Jacques when ask for their name.

Andy on rides

Andy also spent much of their money on playing every game in sight and also riding rides. Andy also bought a beautiful leather bound journal and one small set of armor for one finger. Andy never ceases to surprise with what they can find at The Faire.

The Musical

We made sure to watch this year’s musical which was called “Six Rotten Producers…”. The musical was in two acts and we went to both of them. It was really well done. I love the songs they create each year. Fantastic entertainment! We also enjoyed the musical stylings of a new act this year, The Rowdy Bardlings Celtic Music & Shanties. They will be performing weekend until September 24th. They perform at the stage near the dining area so we enjoyed their music as we ate our lunch. We had a fantastic time and love going to the Faire each year.
