There’s magic in The Woods!
Autumnal Fairy Fest
at Baltimore Woods
October 9, 2021
12-2 pm and 2-4pm
Today’s event is sold out! The fairies invite you to experience the beauty of autumn wherever you may roam on this fine enchanted day!
One remarkable day in autumn, when the trees are a flutter with the colors of fall, the enchanted side of Baltimore Woods shimmers through. Fairies, trolls, and other fantastical creatures can be seen and heard frolicking through the forest. Those bridge trolls are at it again! They have imprisoned the Fairy Queen and it is up to all humans and magical creatures to free her. Along the Enchanted Trail you will meet many such creatures who will help you on your quest – a potion maker in the Wee Folk Forest, a fortune-telling mermaid, minstrels, and more! Just watch out for the trolls! Costumes are encouraged and imagination is a must!
The Fairy Festival will follow a one-way path around the Enchanted Trail, including going into the valley. Trail conditions will vary with weather, so please wear appropriate footwear. The Valley Trail section may not be suitable for people with limited mobility or tiny legs, and strollers are not recommended. There will be a Valley Trail bypass available for those not wishing to go on that section. The Fairy Queen has decreed that the festival will be divided into two time-windows, to allow for physical distancing between participants.
