Fairy House Festival

Save the date for 2019: September 28th and 29th


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 — thank you for your support!  

In 2018, over 1200 children and adults attended our Tenth Annual Fairy House Festival - wow!

Where else do knotholes become front doors? Seashells transform into bathtubs? And twigs woven into ladders? The Fairy House Festival!

This enchanting family experience will be held in the forests of Grafton, Vt. on Saturday, Sept. 28, and Sunday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Visitors will follow a nature path sprinkled with charming fairy houses, where the acorn cap dinnerware and shelf fungi table remind them to walk gently 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.

In Gratitude

The Fairy House Festival Campaign

Thank you to all of the individuals and businesses who have generously supported our 10th Annual Fairy House Festival.

If You Build It...

We are grateful to the over fifty builders whose creations dotted the fairy trail last 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 2018.
