After seven joyful years in Upper Marlboro, the Goblins have come and stolen the Maryland Faerie Festival, whisking it away to the beautiful Camp Ramblewood in Darlington, MD for the weekend of May 11-13, 2012. The new home of the Maryland Faerie Festival features lush wooded and shaded areas, welcoming open spaces, and vastly expanded indoor facilities. Thanks to large, covered dance floors and stages, the Goblin-y antics and Faerie Revels can continue day and night, whatever the weather! Best of all, due to a negotiation stalemate between the Seelie Court, Unseelie Court, and Goblin Gangs, the Maryland Faerie Festival is now proud to announce that it has expanded to three full days of merriment and spectacle!
The Maryland Faerie Festival experience begins with three days of family-friendly activities including storytellers, puppet shows, music, magic, Faerie Tea Parties, crafts, the Glamour Glen, food, fine arts, and games. The Goblins and the night-time fae continue the fun even after the sun goes down, with bonfires and fire performers, drumming and the glorious return of SummerFest! For those who don’t want to miss a moment of the magic, the Faerie Ring Camping Experience allows for a complete escape into the magical and fantastical world of the fae.
“The 2012 Maryland Faerie Festival will be the newest and most unique Faerie experience available on the east coast,” said Kalabran, producer of the event. “Come join us in the magical faerie ring!”
“Fairyz think they so prettie, and throw best partees,” said Wobble Pluunk, a representative of the local Goblin Gangs, “but Goblinz show fairyz how to really boogie down. When we all done, humanz not want to go home ever!”
