Event Details

Once upon a time in Appalachia, there was a very special Traveling Show. It was made up of the strangest folk anyone ever saw. Straight out of storybooks they were, with pointed ears and gossamer wings, furry faces and tails that twitched, men with goat legs, even a mermaid. When they came to town, they brought the magic of Faerie with them: wishes could come true, animals could talk, the imaginary became real.

Situated in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains only 90 minutes outside of Baltimore and DC, The Shepherdstown Fairy Festival is an immersive energetic experience of fairies, fairy tales, and folklore for people of all ages where you can hear live music, meet famous authors, and interact with goblins, satyrs, giants, mermaids, and all variety of Fae.

The story begins this October. Who knows what tales will unfold as the community comes together to celebrate the beauty of Fall and the magic of stories? Learn more at the website. ‚Äč
