For All You Fairies

posted by on March 25 at 12:29 PM

Need something to do this weekend? Why not go to the Spring Fairy Festival, down in Tacoma? It’s on Saturday, March 29th, from noon to ten pm, it costs 20 bucks for adults, and 12 bucks for kids five and over. It’s a place for fairies and fairy-friendly people to celebrate spring. (It’s unclear whether the organizers actively disdain the spelling ‘faerie,’ or if they just prefer the traditional spelling.)

After paying the cover, all events—including music, dancers, a costume contest, face painting, “fairyokee,” and a “Fairy Ball with DJ“—are totally free. As ‘Otter’ says, in the comments to the Spring Fairy Festival announcement:

I and mine have been attending FaerieWorlds festival since they came to the great NW. And these past few years I, and many others, have been wanting something along those lines near to home. You have made many wishes come true. I hope you all are ready for the true strength and numbers of the local Fey.

And if you’re not ready, I suggest you get ready.

I'm into fantasy and all, but "fairyokee" sounds really heinous.

This looks amazing. Curse my stupid broken foot and stupid crutches and stupid not being able to attend freak shows like this.

I hope some of my friends get to go, even if Aislinn and Chris still have broken feet to contend with.

Hmmm, wonder if there's such a thing as "Wounded Fairies" ...
