Last week, we introduced you to our 2021 Woodland Fairies. Have you had a chance to visit? Did you see them? Seeing is believing, after all. Actually… it’s the other way around. When you believe in the fairies and look closely, they’re known to reveal themselves to you. It’s a special treat that only happens once a year and for a limited time. Visit Gardner Village by June 26, 2021 to catch a glimpse. There are many free and paid activities. Here’s more (but not all!) of what you can expect:
IT’S A WING THING
Channel your own inner fairy with one of our many oversized wing backdrops, located throughout Gardner Village.
Just outside Spoiled Rotten Children’s Boutique and Simply Flowers sits an old tree stump. Little did we know it’s actually another fairy dwelling. You don’t want to skip this enchanted gazebo. It’s your unique opportunity to get an up-close look at this fantasy fairy land. There's even Saturday fairy parades at noon hostedby Spoiled Rotten Children's Boutique. They're free and meet at noon each Saturday in front of the shop.
HI, MY NAME IS…
Ever wonder what your friends might call you if you were a Woodland Fairy resident? Now’s your chance to find out. Our fairy friends have kindly created signs to help you identify your true calling. Find them near Center Court (by the water tower) and near the east bridge (close to Chocolate Covered Wagon).
Want to find your fairy name before you arrive? Take the quiz here.
Looking to make your own fairy garden? Our Woodland Fairies (and their Gardner Village friends) actually built most of the houses and accessories they’re showcasing throughout The Village. They're exclusive to The Village and can only be found by visiting here. Stop by with a camera ready. It's like an oasis in the heart of the city.
Even Woodland Fairies enjoy a tropical getaway. They’re often spotted on Fairy Island, located across from A Great Escape. You know what else you can spot on this water wonderland? A whole list of sweet details. Find the list posted and ready and waiting for you on our viewing patio. It’s yet another fun thing you can enjoy in this flight of fancy!
If April showers bring May flowers, what do May showers bring? Why, Woodland Fairies, of course! At least when those showers are pouring forth from the Gardner Village water tower. Stop by and see for yourself. This isn’t just any waterfall. There’s glittery sprinkles in this sprinkling.
Before your outgoing flight departs, don’t forget to snap a few more pics at our many happy backdrops. The giant toadstools around the stage in Center Court make the cutest springtime snapshots!
We can’t wait to see your whimsical winged crew fluttering about Gardner Village soon! Come as you are or sport wings and a flower crown to really get into the spirit of things. Some of our shops also sell wings, crowns and all things fairy this time of year. Either way, you’re in for a sweet treat now through June 26, 2021.
