Calling All Woodlands Fairies!

While living at Fruitlands, 10-year-old Louisa May Alcott wrote in her diary that she “had a lovely time in the woods with Anna and Lizzie. We were fairies, and made gowns and paper wings. I ‘flied’ the highest of all.”

Don your wings, grab your crowns, and come play in the Fruitlands woods as Louisa and her sisters once played. Weekends of August 7-9 and 14-16, we encourage all visitors to our grounds and trails to build fairy houses around the Willard Archeological site along the yellow trail at Fruitlands Museum. Collect natural materials and build a house for the Fruitlands fairies, then leave your house for the fairies to enjoy and other guests to see as the fairy forest grows.  

Register here to recieve a downloadable Fruitlands Fairy Forest Activity Kit (including map, fairy wand craft tutorial, storytime reading, and more) prior to your visit. Registration includes Gate Admission for the day (Grounds are open from 11am-4pm)
