Did you know that bored faeries can become troublemakers? We fae folk at the Maryland Faerie Festival understand the need for faeries to be occupied ……um….. entertained…. so we strive to bring in the best performers we can find. All types of performers are welcome to try their hand at keeping our visiting faeries delighted (and diverted): singers, dancers, story tellers, musicians, actors, stilt walkers, magicians, flow artists, puppeteers, and whoever else can serve as clever diversions! Of course, the more interactive the act, the better to keep trouble from coming!

Another group of headliners and attention-getters are those ambassadors to other races and realms. In the past, representatives have come from goblins, elves, satyrs, greenmen, magpies, orcs, mermaids, and even dinosaurs. These folk keep the fae engaged with their stories, clothing, props, gifts, and history of their kind.

Oh, but there are those who would choose another path in beating the boredom of the faeries. They attempt to rival the power of the fae with their foul faerie-catching schemes. Admittedly, they are not usually successful; with bubbles and laughter and glitter, our visiting faeries defeat these challengers and have a grand time doing so!

If you think you have the mettle to combat faerie doldrums, you can apply here by December 14, 2017. Two weeks after that date, you will receive notification about your fitness in this endeavor and will be joining us at the Festival. Good luck to you!
