Virtual Faerie Village will be available at FlorenceGriswoldMuseum.org and VirtualFaerieVillage.org.
Due to ongoing health risks associated with large crowds amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and in accordance with guidance from the State of Connecticut, this year’s Wee Faerie Village theme, Folly Woods – Awesome Wee Faerie Architecture has been postponed to October of 2021, when the museum’s usual 12,000+ visitors can experience in person the magic of the faerie artists’ enchanting creations.
But don’t despair! After the success of the museum’s online virtual programs, museum staff are sure that there is faerie fun to be had safely at home. “The faerie fun will not be diminished by bringing the festivities to the virtual world,” says Museum Director Becky Beaulieu. “What will be missed is staff seeing the joy of our visitors. So we’re hoping for a lot of social media posts and pictures of the at-home fun!”
One of the highlights will be Wee TV, half-hour episodes of faerie crafts and special guests. Extra creative faerie aficionados will want to take part in the Wee Faerie Super Fan and Crafting Club. More activities are being planned to capture the magic of the faerie realm for participants of all ages.
The museum wishes to thank the artists who have been working tirelessly on their creations for Folly Woods – Awesome Wee Faerie Architecture. They have graciously agreed to present their work next year.
