This is a day for fairies, magic, and wishes to come true.
For one day, put aside the cynicism of the modern world, embrace the possibilities of the unknown, and believe in fairies. For centuries, fairies have been an important part of culture and legend, and in many ancient legends, these beings are described as intelligent, mischievous, and magical. We mortals don’t often see fairies but creating special fairy houses can bring them here.
Families are invited to 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 they are natural – fairies shun man-made materials.
We’ll summon the fairies with music and fairy snacks and learn which plants and trees attract fairies. All 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 arboretumfriends.org/fairy-day-2014.
