Join us for this annual celebration of art, music, movement, nature, stories, and children’s fairy tale fun as we welcome summer to the museum! This day of activities will send your little elves and fairies alight as they sing and dance with Karen K & The Jitterbugs, learn about nature with The Caterpillar Lab, and create their own treasures to take home.
Fairy, elf, and magical attire encouraged–wear your favorites from home or borrow some of our fairy wings and costumes! Bring a picnic lunch to eat at our enchanted toadstool tables.
This popular event is inspired by the museum’s collection of historic children’s picture books and fairy tales. Scroll down for the Schedule of Events, ticketing, and more!
