The Faerie Gathering

Our annual faerie-themed event, held each year around the summer solstice!

Faerie Tale Creature: Glittering Dragonfly from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
Location: Activity Center Shelter

Faerie tale dragonflies aren’t that much different than the real dragonflies that live at Monroe Lake – many of them also show off beautiful, iridescent, glittering wings! DROP BY to craft a glittering dragonfly, suitable for flitting through a faerie garden, and see how your dragonfly compares to the real ones flying about our lake shoreline. Craft takes about 15 minutes to complete.

Faerie Garden Feature: Baby Bassinet from 1 to 5 p.m.
Location: Activity Center

Spring and early summer is a popular time for baby animals to be born. In sync with the seasons, faeries tend to grow their families during this time too. Help out the faerie family in your home garden prepare for their newest addition – DROP BY to create a tiny faerie baby bassinet out of an acorn. Craft takes about 10 minutes to complete.

Faerie Tale Creature: Sullen Snail at 2:15 p.m.

Gather round to listen to a little-known faerie tale by Hans Christian Anderson, the Snail and the Rosebush. After the story, you’ll make your own snail and miniature rosebush (perfect for adding to a faerie garden!). 30 minutes

Faerie Garden Feature: Miniature Wind Chimes from 3:30 to 5 p.m.
Location: Activity Center Shelter

Faeries come in so many amazing shapes, sizes, colors, and other variations! DROP BY this evening to design your own pinecone faerie. Craft takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
