Boys and girls of all ages can flutter and flit with fairies, wands, wings, and other magical things on Saturday, July 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Children's Center’s Fairy Land Festival at Cate Park in Wolfeboro. Admission is by a suggested donation of $5 per person or $15 per family. Children 12 and under are free. The rain date will be Sunday, July 8.

The event will feature dozens of fairy houses, which are tiny homes built of “found” materials, lots of creativity, and a giant pinch of pixie dust. Twigs, stones, leaves, shells, bark, pine needles, leaves, and acorn caps become foundations, rafters, roofs, soft floors, and doors to these amazing creations. The design possibilities are enchanting and infinite. For more information on displaying a house at the festival, visit: Fairy Houses Wanted

Along with many wonderful fairy houses that will be on display, the event will include face painting, bubbles, a craft table for making your own special fairy house, and a store selling wands, fairy wings, and much more.

Kids can participate in the magic by coming dressed as dashing princes, fairy princesses, or daring adventurers, and then build their own fairy houses at the crafts table.

Awards will be given at the event to recognize the wonderful creations displayed at the festival. Some of these fairy houses may be raffled off at the event. All proceeds will benefit the Children's Center.
