You've probably heard people talking about the New York Faerie Festival or even seen photos that others have shared on social media, but what exactly is the New York Faerie Festival? Magic on earth, that's what it is.

The New York Faerie Festival is centered around the “A Midsummer’s Dream” and is where fairies, elves, and other fantastic creatures gather in the wooded hollows which are located between the Finger Lakes and the Catskill mountains in the tiny town of Ouaquaga which is about four miles north of Windsor, six miles south of Harpursville, and roughly 25 minutes from downtown Binghamton.

For several years, the Faerie Festival has been offering family fun along with a slew of other neat things to do for all who attend. Special features include things such as taking a walk in a Labyrinth inside Wattleston Garden, watching jugglers, magicians, “wandering minstrels,” puppeteers, actors, and storytellers. The New York Faerie Festival also offers delicious local food and so much more. If you’re lucky, you might even get to meet the Faerie Queen and her Court of characters!

The 2018 Faerie Festival is scheduled for Friday, June 29th from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, June 30th from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, July 1st, also from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
