BELMONT, N.C. – Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is hosting Fairy Festival on Saturday, Nov. 14 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and participants will enjoy a day of crafts, music, a costume parade, fairy house workshops, horse-drawn carriage rides, and more!
Author Tracy Kane will lead two workshops designed to spark creativity, imagination and fun. Using natural materials found in nature such as bark, pinecones, twigs and stones, Tracy will facilitate the build of whimsical fairy houses in Lost Hollow (11 a.m.) and the Orchid Conservatory (1 p.m.). Participants will collect and use provided natural supplies and build fairy dwells that will then become a part of the Garden itself.
Halle Russell will also host 2 limited-admission workshops at both 9 a.m. and noon. Fairy houses from Halle’s workshops may be used in the holiday display and can be picked up after the holidays. Participants will create habitats for fairies and friends to visit in both workshops, all the while engaging with the natural world. Halle’s workshops are limited to 18 participants and guests may register for free in advance at www.dsbg.org.
Kids wearing fairy wings and/or outfits receive free admission. Fairy Festival activities are free with general Garden admission. Admission for Garden members is free, $12.95 for adults, $11.95 for seniors 60+, and $6.95 for children 2-12.
