Want to Immerse Yourself in a Pirate World? Pirate Festival Coming to the Hudson Valley
Attention fans of pirates! Want to spend a day experiencing pirate life?
If you are like me and are always looking for your next adventure, I think I have found a destination we should try at least once. It's called Kingdom Faire and it's landing in Putnam Valley this spring and summer.
According to the Kingdom Faires website, their festival plans to give us all the chance to immerse in a world of pirates, ARRR!!! There will be live shows, unique craftsmen, attractions, and much more.
Pick a Side "Pirates or Royalty"?
Kingdom Faire will offer visitors to join in on the fun with their original theatrical production called the Pirate Queen. This interactive show will run throughout each day and consist of 5 acts which will all work together to create a storyline that will unfold through the day. Each show will feature musical numbers, stage combat, humor, and drama and will appeal to guests of all ages. What side will you pick in what they are calling an "epic battle of royalty and rogues"?
When Will Kingdom Faire Be Open
The world of "piratical fantasy" is set to open on weekends and Memorial Day starting April 30th and will be open every weekend through June 26, 2022. The Faire will open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on weekends and from 11 a.m. through 7 p.m. on Memorial Day. Once open, the faire will offer specialty weekends including, Atlantis (May 7/8), Star Crossed Lovers (May 14/15), Heroes and Swashbucklers (May 28/29/30), and Mythos (June 11/12).
