2019 Fairy House Festival

Children are invited to wear their favorite fairy and elf costumes to encourage their tiny guests to alight in Franklin Park.

In order to welcome the local elf and fairy population, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department is hosting their sixth annual Fairy House Building Festival on Thursday, April 18, from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Schoolmaster Hill in Franklin Park.

This free, family event will feature:
  • outdoor nature play
  • storytelling
  • entertainment from Rosalita’s Puppets
  • plant education from the Massachusetts Horticultural Society
  • face Painting, and
  • Fairy House Building.

Children are invited to wear their favorite fairy and elf costumes to encourage their tiny guests to alight in Franklin Park. Natural materials will be provided, but youngsters are welcome to explore their surroundings to find natural elements, including sticks, stones, and leaves to adorn their fairy houses.

Schoolmaster Hill is located on Circuit Drive between the William Devine Golf Course Clubhouse and Shattuck Hospital. For more information, please call the Boston Parks and Recreation Department at 617-635-4505, or visit the Parks website.
