Vendors Ramp Up for Another Exciting Fairy House Fest!


We are delighted to have several vendors participating in the the Fairy House Festival taking place NEXT weekend, September 23rd-24th. 

With the fairy trail and all of the other activities and excitement of the festival, it's very easy to build up an appetite. While we welcome folks to pack a picnic lunch, you may wish to save room instead for the fresh fare on offer from two special locally-based food vendors participating in the festival.

As a big believer in magic, our store is thrilled to be serving up goodness at the Fairy House Festival! The festival weekend turns our little town into a whimsical, wonderful adventure and is one of our team’s favorite events of the year!
— Ali Hartman, Owner, MKT:Grafton

It doesn't get more local than MKT: Grafton.  The modern general store, located on Grafton's Main Street, will be selling an assortment of delicious fare at the festival this year. Lunch will be served both days from 11am-3pm at their festival booth.

Returning vendor Jamaican Jewelz Catering, based out of Rockingham, will be serving a selection of freshly prepared plates, including jerk chicken and other Jamaican cuisine favorites. 

And stop by our own refreshments tent where we will be selling fresh popped popcorn, cold seltzer water, and delicious locally made ice cream sourced by Rushton Farms, Grafton, VT. 

In addition to all the tasty fare that will be available at the festival, we are excited to welcome back two talented art-minded vendors. Body artist and face painter extraordinaire Mona Frye of Handpainted By Mona of Springfield will be back to bring joy to the faces of festival-goers. Chester favorite, Community Art Garden, will be back; owner Emily Burkland will be offering her signature hair feathers.
