Seattle festival appeals to fantasy fans

September 29, 2013 by  

Taking place next month is the Seattle Faerie Festival, hosted by the Northwest Museum of Legends and Lore.

There are expected to be many activities taking place at the festival to appeal to fans of fantasy and folklore. A Faerie Parade around the park, which gives everyone the opportunity to show off their costumes, will be one of the highlights. There will also be faerie games, music, theater productions such as the Sockdrawer Puppets, costume contests, face painting, and a chance to meet with the Seattle Garden Gnome at the Jester’s stage.

Throughout the day, visitors receive free admission to the Conservatory, where they can take a Fairy Garden Workshop. Those who take advantage of this can then take home their creations. Vendors will also be selling a variety of merchandise that should appeal to those in attendance; this might include clothing, books, artwork, and home decor. Local pet rescue organizations are also expected to be on hand to inform the public about the work they do in the community.

Seattle printing companies have probably been hired to provide the organizers with products such as signs and banners for decoration and direction.

The Seattle Faerie Festival is being held at the Volunteer Park Amphitheater on October 5 from 12:00 pm – 6:00 PM. Admission is free. The Fairy Garden Workshop at the Conservatory is taking place from 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm. The fee is $25, which includes all materials.
