Help Baltimore Faerie Faire be a Bright Spot in our City!
Mission Statement:
The Baltimore Faerie Faire celebrates the wonders of the natural world, and all the beings that inhabit it, real and imaginary. We seek to to heal, inspire, nurture, entertain and serve our Baltimore community by creating Wonder in an urban Faerie Festival. We strive to find balance between the concrete and the dirt, the practical and the fantastic. Promoting creativity in costume, crafts, music, dance, art and attitude, Baltimore Faerie Faire seeks to create a welcoming space for young and old, dreamers and doers, artists and patrons of the arts.

WE HAD A GREAT FAIRE on May 16, 2016, and we are going to do it again! BRINGING LIGHT AND JOY AND LOVE AND WHIMSY! Please sign up to volunteer, or donate a little money, or come vend your wares! And yes, we heard you, we will have more FOOD.

In the Forest of Steel and Stone
by Emily Crum

In the forest of steel and stone
In the chasing limlight shades of dark and bright
You cannot see us for the glare
But we are there
We are there

In the jungle of tumbledown houses
Where thought and memory roost in the echoing rafters
The gap-toothed windows look empty
But we are there
We are there

In the rushing river of the asphalt street
Among the dancing swirls of a million newspaper mayflies
In the pulsing heartbeat of cars as they swish past
We are there
Oh yes, we are there

In the seemingly empty in-between places
Where concrete covers the earth in a cracked blanket
And broken glass twinkles in the dancing heat haze
We are there, too
We are always there

Waiting

For you

To say hello.

I'm afraid it is not a wheelchair accessible site for the most part. One room, Kromer Hall, is, but the courtyard, room with the Masquerade and clothing vendors have stairs.

Regarding the site -- is it wheelchair accessible? I have a friend who would like to attend, but needs a way for wheelchairs to get around...
