Fairy House Festival returns to The Nature Museum

GRAFTON — On Saturday, Sept. 24, and Sunday, Sept. 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., The Nature Museum will present its eighth annual Fairy House Festival. The experiential event is held around the museum grounds and in the forests of Grafton.

Over 40 tiny houses built by amateur “architects” for fairies to reside, visit, or just stop for a rest will greet festival-goers as they follow the trail of custom-built dwellings made of natural materials.

According to a news release, “this is a puckish annual tradition that inspires people of all ages to take a closer look at nature.” All ages are welcome, and many don fantasy dress consistent with the theme.

Hands-on crafts, face painting, and bubbles round out this interactive experience. Light refreshments will be available for purchase and picnicking is encouraged.
