Earth Day Fairy Fest
Saturday, April 22, 2023
10 a.m. - 1p.m.
Celebrate Earth Day with who else? The fairies! Our sweet little event features guest fairies, an Earth Day puppet show in the forest, and plenty of unplugged nature crafts. Ideal for families and caregivers with children up to age 10.
WHAT CAN WE DO AT EARTH DAY FAIRY FEST?
You can make your own fairy wings, wands, and eco-friendly fairy glitter; bedeck the forest with fairy and gnome homes; and take a spin around the May pole! Feel free to dress in your favorite fairy, elf, or gnome garb (we hear they are flattered when humans mimic them) or have your face painted. There will be tree planting activities and a honeybee hive demo with Hexed Honey Farm. The University of Maryland Extension's Master Gardeners will share Bay-Wise education ideas with us, too. Did we mention the baby chicks?!
Featured guest Karen Madigan, co-author of the award-winning Nature Play Workshop for Families will share a hands-on activity from her book. Feel free to bring your copy to get signed!
Space is limited (and the event sold out in 2022!). Pre-registration is required; sorry, NO walk-in registrations will be accepted. General registration opens on March 15. Register now!
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!
If you'd like to become a sponsor, please let us know! The Notchcliff Parent Group spends months planning for this event, and we rely on local business sponsors and donors to help make it possible.
