Fairy Walk
Saturday October 8, 2022  1pm - 4pm (3 Hours )
Recreation / Fitness Fundraiser / Charity Family Friendly Outdoor Community


This outdoor family event starts at the gazebo and follows the short purple trail that is part of the Black Rock trail system behind the community centre.

Children of all ages, including those young at heart, have enjoyed this event since we started in 2016. Find the fairy houses and other whimsical creations. Look up in the trees, look down and around on the woodland floor.

Create or add to unfinished fairy houses using natural materials that have been left - twigs, stones, leaves, and bark, etc. If you want, bring materials and any whimsical creations you have made at home (natural materials only please) to add to the enchanted fairyland as you walk the trail.
Come as a fairy, elf, or any magical creature you want to be … we’ve even had walking trees show up!
Come join the Gathering of the Fairies!!
Free will donation (fund raiser for the Black Rock Trails Society)

The Tradition of Fairy Houses has its roots on a few islands off the coast of Maine. For decades people were inspired to create whimsical houses made from natural things for fairies to visit. It is easy to feel the presence of fairies in the quiet of the woods when the sunbeams float through the sea mist and shine on the mosses and ferns of the wood. Surrounded by nature, her colours, shapes and textures, one is inspired to create little houses with roofs, soft floors, and acorn cups. Perhaps the fairies are hidden between the layers that the woods reveal to us as we create a small gift by leaving a shelter for the little folk.
