Fairy Homes and Gardens: Lexington
We all know fairies exist, but did you know there’s a worldwide interest in creating homes and gardens for them? Fairy houses are small, whimsical outdoor dwellings for fairies to live in, ranging from simple houses made from natural materials to elaborate mansions made of metal or resin.
At several museums and botanical gardens, visitors of all ages have been encouraged to build fairy dwellings and the results are as unique as each person is. Now we would like to bring fairy houses and gardens to Lexington!
The Lexington Council of Arts is proposing that our organizations work together, drawing on our different talents, using the various outdoor areas in Lexington to hold a week-long fairy-themed event June 6-12, 2022 (week to be changed) called Fairy Homes and Gardens: Lexington. We view partnering as a way to strengthen our community, a means to create ties to connect one to another, and a vehicle for ideas and activities.
