Join us on the night of Saturday, May 12 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 goblin-made covered stages will ensure that nothing will stop the revels. The celebration begins at 8:00pm, when the music of ilyAMY pulls you out of your seat and sets you on your feet. Our guests will also be treated to fire spinners and an exclusive dance. The evening will culminate with Maryland Faerie Festival’s beloved tribal and electro-ecstatic band, Telesma. Dress in your faerie finest and gather under the cover of darkness to celebrate SummerFest! Purchase tickets here.
An important note, On Friday April 20th 2012, Telesma band member and friend Ian Hesford suffered a sudden heart attack while onstage. He is in very bad shape but he’s recovering each day. Without insurance, Ian will need all the help that can be gathered. Telesma is setting up a special trust to handle donations for Ian’s benefit. More information can be found, and donations can be made here. 100% of the funds collected here will be deposited into the special trust. These contributions are not tax deductible, but will be spent for Ian. Updates can be found on Telesma’s Facebook .
Telesma will be performing select events in the coming months to help raise money for Ian, and to help us all heal. “We know it will be difficult emotionally to perform without Ian but we know that’s what he would want.” The Maryland Faerie Festival is honored to remain on the schedule, at this time. We send our love and prayers for Ian, his family, and his friends as he fights to survive.The Maryland Faerie Festival Friday, May 11 – Sunday, May 13, 2012 Camp Ramblewood
