Wee Faerie Village presents...Twinkle Point!


Be ready to shriek, whoop, and giggle as you make your way around Twinkle Point: An Amusement Park for the Wee Faerie Folk. Artists and faerie aficionados are already hard at work on their faerie-sized roller coasters, carousels, arcades, and shops – everything you might find at any amusement park – only tiny.

This year, there are 27 creative teams, including six schools and four brand new teams. 

Here’s to 2022’s “Whee” Faerie Village! We hope you’ll join us at Twinkle Point October 1 through 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 pint-sized installations across the Museum’s campus on a perfect autumn day, and this will be no exception!

Check out all the Wee Faerie Village special events and programs for the month of October here…

Check back soon to learn more about special events happening on campus throughout October. And watch the Museum’s social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube) for updates and behind the scenes content.
