The World of Faeries Festival always has something new each and every year. We showcase the best local musical talent and entertainment as well as from the surrounding states, even as far away as New York (Frenchy and the Punk) and New Mexico (Randy Granger). We also have the most creative fantasy and fairy artisans who bring their special talents and skills to each event, offering one-of-a-kind handcrafted wares in our vendor village under the ancient oaks of Vasa Park. Many travel extensively to display fine art, fine crafts, sculpture, puppets, published fantasy books, handmade clothes, fantasy and fairy attire, aromatherapy products, and much more. We encourage families to dress in their best fantasy or fairy outfit, leave their “adult” at home and come and enjoy the magic of the event. All ages are welcome from 1 to 101!
