This unique four-day event will bring imagination and creativity to life through the wonderful theme of fairy magic! With most activities free, “Welcome to Fairyville” features fairy storytelling, a fairy house decorating contest, crafts, tea parties and more, in a program created to entertain both kids and adults.

“We are really looking forward to hosting another ‘Welcome to Fairyville’ this year because of the creative spark the event ignites in all our fairy-loving visitors,” Aili McGill, Nickel Plate Arts director, said. “The Fairy House Contest is a great way for people of any skill level or age to showcase their artistic ability.
