The Fairie Festival (also known as the May Day Fairie Festival, or Pennsylvania Fairie Festival) is the music and arts festival currently held annually at Spoutwood Farm, that began in 1991. The festival’s primary theme is to “celebrate the beginning of spring and all of the faerie and nature spirits’ return to the warm world”.
The May Day Fairie Festival is the brainchild of Rob and Lucy Wood, owners of Spoutwood Farm, an organic farm in the Community Supported Agriculture movement. It began as a tea party for about 100 friends and their children, and attendance has grown to over 12,000 “friends” annually. Previously a one-day festival, a second day was added in 1997; a third, in 1999. The festival features artists and authors from around the world, local and international musicians and crafters whose work is connected to or inspired by folklore, specifically faerie lore.
