Everyone believes in fairies at the Maryland Faerie Festival, and it's easy to see why. The grounds are covered with dozens of these magical creatures, and they are the festival's star performers, after all. Wendy Rule, for example, weaves together story and song. Kate Nyx performs gothic folk music, Joffrey the Mystical Goatman sculpts fairy wings from balloons, and the Faerie Ring Theater puts on plays for kids and adults alike.
Thanks to those and other performances, the festival keeps faerie folklore alive. Attendees are free to join in the fun as well, whether by dressing up as fairies themselves or by exploring arts and crafts from dozens of vendors. The festival also hosts various activities, such as a nature walk and fairy-themed crafting and writing workshops.
