Wee Faerie Village

September 30 to October 29

Faerieville, USA is an enchanting town where faeries live, play, and work.

Walk along Wee Faerie Boulevard and marvel at the quintessential small-town features such as the wee faerie Grocery Store, Post Office, and Flower Shop. Make a right at Faerie Landing to visit the wee faerie School, Movie Theater, and Police Station. Explore the wee faerie Park, Opera House, and Bank. Everything faeries require to get through their whimsical day can be found in and around this friendly town.

FAERIEVILLE, U.S.A. is supported by an anonymous donor who believes in the power of imagination; by the Donald Joffray Family as well as Roy and Deborah Moore; and by the Community Foundation of Middlesex County.
