Dragons and fairies are just a couple of the magical creatures that live in Audubon Community Nature Center’s natural wonderland. When you come to Audubon’s second annual Dragons and Fairies Festival, you can visit with some of these creatures, dress up in costume, search for dragon eggs, and enjoy a festive time.
Among the free activities are kids’ archery, a dragon egg hunt, story time with the Fairy Queen, and a costume booth. Other activities have a small fee, including purchasing fairy crowns and face painting. Tickets that are accepted instead of cash — county fair ride style — can be purchased at the reception desk or outdoor ticket booth.
A wandering woods elf awards gifts for people who answer some forest trivia questions and a roving band of merry men entertain as they traverse the trails. Tread carefully on bridges and keep an eye out for trolls, who may challenge you if you wish to use their bridge.
Other vendors will be on hand with wares to sell including crowns, wizard staffs, wands, and more.
Food and drinks with a wonderland theme are also available for purchase.
Come in your best costume if you’d like: be a fairy, elf, dragon, goblin or other magical woodland creature. Staff will hand out prizes to the best costumes, adults and children alike.
Winners of the Fairy House Contest (open to ages five and up, in three separate age categories) will be on display. A nominal entry fee to the contest includes one ticket to the event and the winners are eligible for prizes.
