Wednesday Jun 21 2023

Welcome back to part two of our Gardner Village Woodland Fairy Festival coverage. Last time, we shared a look at the fairy parades happening every Saturday at noon, now through July 1, 2023. Today, we’ll check out Monday-Saturday fun to be had as you get into the full wing of things!

 Woodland Fairy Festival

Woodland Fairy Displays

This is how it all began back in 2016. Fairies landed in The Village and set up shop. Every year, they bring a few more friends back with them, offering new sites to find and ideas to inspire.

The Wishing Bridge

Don't forget to seize this chance to put your heart's desire into flight. First, find a courtesy wishing ribbon inside Seven Gables Mercantile. Make your way across the Wishing Bridge and tie your ribbon on as you make your wish. With fairy wonderment abound, you never know what ideas will take flight.
