Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Calling all fairies, princess, pirates, jesters, dragons and all other mythical & magical folks…
Join your friends on Saturday, October 1st from noon – 5pm in the MainStrasse Village for the Wee Folk Fairy Fest – it’s an afternoon of fun & magic! Boys & girls, ladies & gentlemen, old & young (and in between)…everyone is welcome, and costumes are highly encouraged! According to the Wee Fok Fairy Fest’s facebook page: “the concept of the Festival is based on the imaginative notion that for one day a year, Mainstrasse opens a portal from the Fairy World where Fairies and other magical beings come through to play with humans”.
I took my munchkins to the Wee Folk Fairy Fest last year, and they had a fabulous time. There were so many fun activities, such as a parade led by a horse drawn carraige & the Queen of the Fairies, tribal dancers, magicians, music, a petting zoo, face painting, arts & crafts, and much more! The children were enchanted, as was their mama when she spied “Captain Jack Sparrow” strolling through the crowd. The kids especially liked watching all of the performers (Sam LOVES belly dancers!) and checking out all of the cool costumes. They are already figuring out what they are going to wear this year.
Here’s the line-up for this year’s event:
12:30 to 1:00 Miss Ruthie and Professor Paddy
1:00 to 1:30 – David Kisor of Children Inc.

While you are at Main Strasse, stop for a treat at the Candy Bar (read all about this fun store in Shannan’s post), or do a little shopping for your little fairy princess at Stoney’s Gifts, or get some cool monogrammed gifts at MK’s Totebags & Monogramming, or stop for a bite to eat at any of the great restaurants on Main Street. My choice would be to take some burgers home from Zola (yum!). Sara told us all about her fun day with her girls in MainStrasse Village, so if you’re looking for more ideas check it out! You can spend the entire day in MainStrasse Village having so much fun!
