Join the Wenham Museum for our annual celebration of fairy tales, nature, and woodland magic as we welcome summer to the museum!  This day of activities will send your little elves and fairies alight as they explore our fairy garden and create their own treasures to take home.

Bring a picnic lunch to eat at our enchanted toadstool tables and grab a cookie and ice cream for dessert from food vendors, Kim’s Pure Pastry or Street Treats.

Fairy Portraits are also back by popular demand!  Tracey Westgate Photography will be providing portraits this year.  Visitors are strongly encouraged to reserve their portrait sitting in advance as spaces are limited.  The sitting fee is $30 and includes one 5 x 7 portrait.  Additional prints are available as follows:  Additional prints: 8 wallets, $10; 4 x 6, $5; 5 x 7, $7; 8 x 10, $15; high-resolution digital download, $20.

This annual festival is inspired by the museum’s collection of historic children’s picture books and fairy tales and celebrates children’s literature and nature through hands-on art making activities, music, movement, and stories.
