The Faerie Festival will be held rain or shine from 10 am to 5 pm on both Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23, 2019, at Marshy Point Park in Middle River, MD.
The festival will feature live music, dancing, bubbles, magicians, fairies, goblins, renowned craft vendors, and more winged things than you can count!

Spoutwood Farm and the Marshy Point Nature Center Council are delighted to have partnered together to present the 2019 Summer Solstice Faerie Festival. While the creeks and wetlands of Marshy Point may be far from the rolling hills and fields of Spoutwood, the same water that flows through Spoutwood’s Pierceville Run eventually meets the Chesapeake Bay and touches Marshy Point. Connected by water, spirit, and mission, both Spoutwood Farm and Marshy Point exist to further an appreciation for the natural world and demonstrate our shared connection to the environment.
The Summer Solstice Faerie Festival will allow both organizations to share the magic of nature and celebrate the wonder of the season. The opportunity to bring a community of friends and fae together is exciting and enchanting. After the festival, both Spoutwood and Marshy Point are looking forward to turning your support into the educational programs that will make the world a friendlier, better, and more magical place.
