10th Annual

Fairy House Festival

September 29-30, 2018
10AM to 4PM


Where else do knotholes become front doors...
Sea shells transform into bathtubs...
And twigs woven into ladders...

The Fairy House Festival! 

Young and old are welcome to come connect directly with the environment. Express your creativity while finding the inherent magic of nature and spending time within it! This enchanting family experience will be held in the forests of Grafton, Vermont, on Saturday, September 29th, and Sunday, September 30th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Visitors will follow a nature path sprinkled with charming fairy houses, where the acorn cap dinnerware and shelf fungi table remind them to walk spritely on the earth. Visitors then return to The Nature Museum to create their own fairy dwellings in the gardens. Hands-on crafts, face painting, and bubbles round out this interactive and magical experience for all. Light refreshments will be available for purchase; we also encourage picnicking. Check out our FAQ page for answers to all of your Fairy Fest questions!


Plan to Attend

Your attendance at the Festival allows us to offer exciting and affordable nature programs, library programs, and camps to underserved youth and adults throughout the region, regardless of income.

If You Build It...

We are grateful to the over fifty builders whose creations will be dotting the fairy trail this year. We'll be posting a list of this year's builders shortly!

Help Wanted

We couldn't pull off the festival without a cadre of amazing volunteers. We're always looking for individuals ready to lend a hand in the months leading up to the fest or that weekend on site. Be a part of the magic!
