Gardner Village has a fun, FREE adventure every summer. The Woodland Fairies move into the village during the month June. In 2023, you can enjoy the fairies from June 1-July 1. Our boys are always excited to go see what the fairies are doing, and they think their homes are amazing. Visiting the Woodland Fairies at Gardner Village is a fun family outing.
Admire the Fairy Homes
Throughout the village, you will find little Fairy homes. Sometimes there are elaborate homes that take up quite a bit of space. Other times there are small little houses built into a barrel, or even hanging in the trees. We had so much fun searching all over for the different fairies. And the boys loved all the tiny little objects in the houses that were fairy sized!
Enjoy the Village
Our favorite spots in Gardner Village are the bridges. We love all the bridges and looking for fish, ducks, and other creatures. We happened to spy a snake on the bridge this trip, and my boys said it was the best thing we saw! Wandering through the village is fun all year long, but it’s extra fun when there are fairies to find.
There is a A to Z scavenger hunt throughout Gardner Village. Each letter has a clue that directs you to the next little fairy. The fairies are well labeled and in jars hanging throughout the village, so they are easy to find! This is a fun way to keep little ones walking along. My boys raced from fairy to fairy to try to make it all the way through the alphabet. This first sign is located in the center court area near the small cottage on the stage.
On Saturdays, there is a free fairy parade at 12 pm, and there are lots of other activities happening during this event. For more information about the fairy activities, visit the Gardner Village site. We still had a ton of fun searching for the Woodland Fairies and seeing all the creative fairy houses. Check out the Woodland Fairies at Gardner Village through July, 2023!
