The Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme presents Wee Faerie Village through October 30. Since 2009 over 175,000 visitors have immersed themselves in the spirit of imagination and whimsy that comes from visiting at least two dozen faerie-sized installations across the Museum’s campus on a perfect autumn day, and this year will be no exception!
This year’s theme is Twinkle Point, an amusement park tailored for fay folk. Artists and faerie aficionados have worked for months on roller coasters, carousels, arcades, and shops – everything one finds at an amusement park – only tiny.
The twenty-six creative installations, including those made by six schools and four new participants, are sure to have visitors in awe of their craftsmanship and whimsy.
Open Tuesday-Sunday from 10am to 5pm (closed Mondays). Faerie or other fun dress encouraged – for all ages! A full roster of faerie-related programs and special events can be found at FlorenceGriswoldMuseum.org
