Fairy Festival (Re-Imagined!)


This event has passed, but check out our calendar for fun today, this week, this month!


Calling all fairies young and old! Experience the magic of gossamer wings, fairy wands, and whimsical tales on July 18, 2020!

Families and their young fairies are invited to stroll along a woodland fairy trail decorated with fairy houses at the annual Fairy Festival! This year, this unique event is re-imagined with safety a top priority for families and magical beings! Read more below the changes made to ensure a safe visit.

Guests will search for hidden fairies and colorful mushrooms, read about fairies on the story trail, and take home a fun, fairy goody bag! Be sure to dress up, too! Costumes are encouraged for adults and children!

Plus, enjoy an optional fairy house contest!

Build a fairy house and enter it into a special contest! Participants will vote for their favorite fairy houses during the event — the best one made by a child and best one made by an adult/family will win $20 gift certificates to Fairy Homes and Gardens! Learn more details here.
