The Fairy House Festival

A Magical Event on The Last Weekend in September


Thank You To Our Sponsors, Supporters, Builders, and Volunteers for bringing such joy to our 2019 Festival!

The Fairy House Festival Campaign

Thank you to all of the individuals and businesses who have generously supported our 11th Annual Fairy House Festival.

If You Build It...

We are grateful to the over fifty builders whose creations dotted the fairy trail this year. See whose creativity was on display!

We love our volunteers.

We couldn't pull off the festival without a cadre of amazing volunteers. These lovely folks lent us a hand in 2019.


The Fairy House Festival is The Nature Museum's annual fundraiser and draws over 1200 visitors to Grafton each September. Volunteers create a fairyland of small structures built out of natural materials, opening a portal to the incredible world around us through deep observation of nature's gifts.

In 2019, we set new records in both attendance and funds raised — thank you! The crowds were delightful, and we couldn’t pop popcorn or scoop ice cream fast enough!

The funds raised at the Fairy House Festival go to support natural science programs in schools and libraries, wilderness days for tweens, wild foods workshops, summer camps for kids, mushroom talks, birding walks, and so much more . . . .  

Join us as we create a magical experience while fostering a deeper connection to community and nature. . . . Mark your calendars for September 26 - 27, 2020!
