Flanders Nature Center & Land Trust will host its annual Faeries & Wizards Festival on July 21 at the Sugar House area. The festival is being held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. that day, and admission to the festival is $7 per person and free for children aged 2 and under.
It will be a magical day of viewing faerie houses that will enchant the trails and grounds. There will be a scavenger hunt, crafts, live animals, tractor rides, games, a Native American storyteller, face painting, a performance from Woodbury Ballet, vendors, surprises and food with a magical twist! The magic continues with a Costume Contest and Faerie & Wizard Parade, live bird presentation and woodcarvers on site creating wands!
Participants are invited to build their own Faerie/Wizard house for display at the festival. Each participant will have a 4-foot by 4-foot outdoor space, in which to display the miniature home and “landscaping.” Organizers suggest working with a base structure, which could be a bird house or milk carton, adding “towers” and “turrets,” using paper towel tubes or tooth paste boxes and decorating inside and out with natural materials, highlighted by artificial flowers, doll house furniture or other creative elements.
Houses must be set up between 8 and 10 a.m. on July 21 at Flanders. Ribbons will be awarded in various categories for the best designed faerie dwellings.
