What You'll Get
Bring the family and join fellow lovers of fantasy, the mythic arts, crafts and costumes, ancient wisdom teachings, and tribal music at Baltimore's Wyndham Grand Hunt Valley Inn for the 9th Annual FaerieCon International. The world's largest gathering of acclaimed faerie and fantasy artists and best-selling authors is a global destination, with three days of author signings, workshops, panels and presentations, and the Mythic Marketplace -- called "the finest fantasy lifestyle shopping experience on the East Coast." Meet New York Times bestselling authors Holly Black, Melissa Marr, Kelley Armstrong, Lou Anders, Kami Garcia and Game of Thrones and Tolkien artist Ted Nesmith. Appearing as a special guest is Einar Selvik, co-composer of the hit TV series Vikings and founder of the Nordic band Wardruna. The highlights of the weekend are two Masquerade Balls -- one for Good Faeries and one for Bad Faeries -- and an acoustic concert featuring internationally acclaimed bands Faun, Martine Kraft, Woodland, Einar Selvik and Adam Hurst. Come in costume (or create one there) and join the fun!
Why are faeries so popular? “In these challenging times, people enjoy escaping to a world of fantasy. This is at the core of Harry Potter’s appeal: an ordinary boy who discovers he is a magician and escapes his ordinary life to fulfill his destiny,” says FaerieCon producer Emilio Miller-Lopez. “This is why faerie believers wear wings: They are symbols of flight, freedom and beauty and declarations of identity.”
“Faeries are not just for children; it’s a lifestyle that appeals to all ages and has its own unique philosophy and iconography. Families love to come to FaerieCon: There is something for everyone. Guests enjoy the rare opportunity to meet their favorite artists and authors, shopping for one-of-a-kind arts, crafts, fantastic clothing and jewelry and then dancing to amazing international bands at the Masquerade Balls,” says producer Robert Gould. “It’s quite a spectacle.”
