Bring your wings for a day of magic! Follow a trail of fairy houses along enchanted forest paths, hunt for gnomes in the Funshine Garden, and join in a meadow maypole dance. Natural materials will be on hand for making an array of magical crafts. Shimmering face painting, archery, a dragon tram, and magical games are part of the fun. Don't forget your camera for photos with the Fairy Court!

Live entertainment includes performances by Shore Shakespeare and the Sammati Dance Troupe of Caroline County. Unicorn rides by Snapdragon Stables, fairy accessories (including unicorn headbands by K & I Hair Bows), and refreshments--including ice cream from Nice Farms Creamery--will be available for an additional fee. 

On Sunday, September 16, artist Diane DuBois Mullaly will lead lovers of magic in a Fairy Gems workshop. Fairy Gems are small stones painted with fanciful fairy images like fairy wings and wands, flowers, fairies, and gnomes—then sprinkled with fairy dust—and hidden along the Arboretum’s trails to be discovered during Fairyfest on October 13. All materials are nontoxic and waterproof. Feel free to wear your fairy wings and crowns! All materials are provided, but enrollment is limited. Click here to register.
