Fairy House Magic
at The Strong® Museum
May 13

Flutter in for an enchanting, magical day during Fairy House Magic at The Strong museum on Saturday, May 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Take pictures with a fairy, listen to story readings, enjoy live musical performances, and more.

Meet Leafy the Fairy and get a sprinkle of fairy dust for good luck. Enjoy story readings at 1 and 2:30 p.m. with Tracy Kane, award-winning author of the Fairy Houses book series. Delight in fairy-inspired music by Lyric Arts Academy at 2 p.m. Transform into a fairy, woodland sprite, or magical creature with delightful fairy wings. Play with whimsical building blocks and woodland animal and fairy puppets. Visit the Discovery Garden and view colorful fairy houses donated by artist Chris Palace.

Use inspiration from this enchanting day to build your own fairy house and submit it to the 2017 Corn Hill Arts Festival Fairy House Tour. Learn more about the festival at cornhillartsfestival.com.

Tracy Kane has received national acclaim for her illustrated children’s books. She has been featured in The New York Times and an award from the American Booksellers Association.
