Events: Wee Fairy Folk Festival

By Emily Keough · September 28th, 2010 · CityBeat Recommends

Calling all woodland creatures, fairies, gnomes, goblins and those who just simply believe in magic: Full Spectrum’s second annual Wee Fairy Folk Fest will be lining MainStrasse Village’s Sixth Street Promenade with glitter this Saturday from noon-5 p.m. Gather your whimsical crew for a full day of prancing around Covington with aerial performers, a selection of comedy acts and an array of fanciful street vendors. Flap your wings and tap your jingling elf shoes to the musical likes of Mayan Ruins and Zahara.

Frolic with your favorite fuzzy friends at the Honey Hill petting zoo or visit Brian Gill and his posse of Cool Critters if you prefer the scalier walks of life.

Wind down your day and inhale your fair share of pixie dust at the parade from 5-7 p.m. These parts of the woods revolve around the fantasy realm of magical, mythical creatures, so don’t forget to pack your best wand and, more importantly, your pointiest pair of Spock ears. Folklore garb is a must if you truly wish to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of days gone past. Even though the event is 100 percent nonprofit, a donation of $25 or $50 can be made to purchase a butterfly that will be suspended from the Promenade trees with your name on it for all to see.
