Artisans from Seekonk show their ware at King Richard’s Faire
September 20, 2013 by Mark
King Richard’s Faire in Carver, just a half-hour’s drive from Seekonk, recently announced that three local artisans from Seekonk are participating in this year’s Renaissance festival, which it holds every year through the months of September and October.
The owners of Mystic Rhythms, The Crystal Garden, and Mad Cow Horns & Fairy Havens, John and Kane Wells, are no doubt using poster printing throughout the town of Seekonk to encourage them to visit the Faire and see their wares of exotic instruments, beautiful crystal jewelry, and stoneware pottery horns.
This is the 32nd season for the Faire, which is located on 80 acres of land in Carver. It is opened on weekends and Monday holidays and offers live and interactive entertainment for people of all ages.
There are live musical acts, theatrical performances, and performers strolling through the park throughout the day. The Faire’s Gaming Glen offers a variety of Renaissance games, such as using a bow and arrow, and attendees can participate in a stage performance, get their palm read, or pick up an item from the medieval times to attract attention.
Epicurean offerings include chowder and stew, spit-roasted giant turkey legs, soups, salads, sandwiches, and beverages such as wine, cider, champagne, and beer.
The artisans from Seekonk join over 100 other artisans from all over the country who display items like jewelry, hand-spun pottery, leather and armor, clothing from the period, perfumes and scented oils, and hand-blown glass.
