This year's Fairyfest offers more outdoor magic than ever! Mix potions in a magic cauldron, visit a dragon's nest, and follow a trail of artisan fairy houses along enchanted forest paths. Feel the wind in your wings on the Neverland pirate ship and sword fight with a scoundrel. Be sure to wear your fantastical costumes! Craft vendors will be selling crystal jewelry, crochet critters, and magical candles and soaps.

In the meadow, enjoy performances by Mid Shore Dance Academy, Allegra!, the Sammati Dance Troupe, and Ampersand. Participating food trucks include Beltway Bistro, Lucky Heart Bakery, Scottish Highland Creamery, and Blue Monkey Street Tacos. Unicorn rides by Snapdragon Stables, a maypole dance, and a magical craft are also part of the fun. Don't forget your camera for photos with the Fairy Court!  

(rain date: Sunday, October 8)
