More about our faire, our story and our characters

For one weekend a year, in this one magical place, anything is possible. You might see Renaissance and Medieval lords and ladies keeping company with vikings and pirates. You might see a Steampunk starship pilot playing cards with mermaids and fairies. You might see mysterious figures lurking in the shadows… but maybe you are just seeing things. 

Visitors can traipse their way along our main thoroughfare and visit craftsmen, merchants, and artisans. Children can enjoy the Kid’s Kingdom crafts, games, storytimes, and even go dancing with the Fairy Court! Adults can sip some mead or beer in our Mead Hall, and everyone is welcome to enjoy the food together in our dining hall. Browse through Author’s Alley or enjoy entertainers, musicians, sword fighters, jugglers, dancers, and bards as you wander your way around the Realm. While you are here, don’t forget to check out the magical artifacts in our special Fairy Tale Museum!

Still looking for more to do? You can even serve the Realm by taking on a Royal Quest!

What is the Royal Quest?

Tragedy has struck the Kingdom, and you are needed to help the Fairy Court defeat the forces of evil. Weakened by a darkness that has swept the world, the Magical Realm faces the return of an old enemy. After a century of banishment, the Lord of Shadows has come to overthrow the Queen of Summer and the King of Earth, and take control of the Court. Standing alongside the Queen and King are the Ladies of Spring, Autumn, and Winter, as well as the Lords of Air, Water, and Fire. Other members of the Fairy Court will guide you along your quests to discover the weakness of the Lord of Shadows and defeat him once and for all!
