About our Festival

Why A Fairy Festival?

I have wanted to invite our local community to celebrate a whimsical world of magic and splendor in a Fairy Festival that is full of exploration and discovery for young people, and that is a feast for the senses for everyone. A day full of merriment, music, dance, art is to be enjoyed and dressing up is to be encouraged! I am so delighted this event has become a reality, and thank Arcata Main Street and the City of Arcata for helping make it happen. 

I hope this becomes a happy addition to the landscape of annual events in Arcata, and a place of happy memories for the young people of our community. Please come sit at the Storytelling Stage, make a craft in Goblin's Grove, journey around the Plaza with Calypso the Dragon, enjoy some Ice Cream or a smoothie blended by a bicycle. Test your skills in the Boffering Arena or listen to beautiful music at the Enchantment Stage. 

Dance into the sunset, find treasures in a magical marketplace, nibble on Kettle Corn or Cotton Candy, become transformed in our Henna, Sparkle Tattoo or Face Painting booths..... 

And support CASA with your bid in our silent auction and at the Ice Cream Cart!

So much to do and only seven hours in which to do it all! 

I hope to see YOU at the first Arcata Fairy Festival & Twilight Ball,
