The New York Faerie Festival Annual Celebration of the Arts

Performances, Arts and Games Inspired by Magic and Make-Believe

Fairies, Elves and Fantastic Creatures gather in wooded hollows between the Finger Lakes and the Catskill mountains. With enchanting music and colorful pageantry they invite you to join them in celebrating nature's wonders and the magic of imagination.

  • Walk the paths of the Wattlestone Garden and the Labyrinth...
  • Enjoy the play of jugglers, magicians and wandering minstrels; of puppeteers, actors and storytellers.
  • Eat wholesome local food.
  • Dance to live music from an array of fantastic performers. We will have some great new musicians as well as old favorites!
  • Meet with the Faerie Queen and her Court of marvelous characters.
  • Thrill to the jousting tournament as Sir Oak and Sir Holly compete for the right to escort the Faerie Queen.

WEAR Your FAERIE FINERY! With parades, processions and interactive performances throughout the day, opportunities abound to share in the pomp and pageantry of A Midsummer's Dream Faerie Festival. From face-painted fairy princesses to wildly costumed characters of fantasy fiction, artful presentation abounds! A favorite feature of our festival is a JURIED EXHIBITION AND SALE of handmade North American artwork and fine crafts. About fifty exhibitors will have been carefully selected for originality and craftsmanship in a balanced variety of media. We enthusiastically encourage you to support our artists and craftspeople.

Something’s Cooking at the Dragon Oven

Many consider the stone Dragon Oven to be part of the Land itself, and indeed, the impressive thing seems to be so.

Pinwheels, Parasols, Wonder and Whimsy

For many fair-goers, this marvelous bit of Fairyland wonder is never experienced. Located at the very front of the New York Faerie Festival grounds, but off to the side and easily missed, is the delightful and unusual area known as the Pinwheel and Parasol Garden.
