Fairy Day is a day for fairies, magic, and wishes to come true. For one day, put aside the cynicism of the modern world and embrace the possibilities of the unknown, and believe in fairies. For centuries, fairies have been an important part of culture and legend, and in all of the ancient legends, these mythological creatures are described as intelligent, mischievous, and magical.
Mortals don’t often see fairies because of the division between our world and theirs but creating special fairy houses can draw them into our world. Families are invited to the Sylvan Terrace to build homes for these visitors. All supplies – bark, branches, lichens, mosses, feathers, stones and leaves – will be provided, or bring your own as long as it’s natural. Fairies shun man-made materials. Summon the fairies with music and fairy snacks and learn which plants and trees will attract fairies to your own backyard.
You never know when you might stumble across something magical!
All the fairy houses will be on display through the end of July. To see photos of previous Fairy Houses or to get ideas for your own house visit our photo gallery and scroll down to last June.
