Faerie Ring Camping Experience
No need to run for the pumpkin coach and lose you slipper, take part in the Faerie Ring Camping Experience and spend the weekend in the land of faeries. You have the options of spending one or two nights, and participating in the meal plan or foraging for yourself in the land of faerie. Don’t just come to the show, be part of it! Get your tickets here.
Faerie Fire and Drum Experience
On the night of Friday, May 10, behold as spirits of primal flame manifest. The evening’s festivities will begin with the kindling of the Faerie Flame, and the beat will rise with the rhythmic drumming of a host of featured drummers and percussionists.
Faeries of flame will flare and flicker far into the night with presentations by our fire spinners, featuring poi spinning and demonstrations which in the past have included: fire staff, whips, swords, hoops, and perhaps other things too wondrous to imagine.
We invite all to join the drummers, dancers, chanters, ritualists, mask-makers, visual artists, poets and dream-weavers to at this intentional co-creative fire circle. Delve into a remarkable experience of Universal Fire Circle Alchemy. The intentional fire circle is a safe and sacred place to dance, sing, and drum, a place to let your spirit take wing and fly. Here are a few pictures from last year.
Join us on the night of Saturday, May 11 at 8 as the mists of Faerie part for the re-emergence of SummerFest. Long renowned as a party so exciting that even the storm spirits came to dance, this year our Faerie Godmothers made covered stages will ensure that nothing will stop the revels.
The celebration begins at 8:00pm, when the music begins and pulls you out of your seat and sets you on your feet. The evening will culminate with Maryland Faerie Festival’s music du jour having you dancing the night away. Dress in your faerie finest and gather under the cover of darkness to celebrate SummerFest!
While evening activities may not be appropriate for small children due to the lateness of the hour, all Maryland Faerie Festival events are family-friendly.
