NY Faerie Festival – Quaquaga, NY


The NY Faerie Festival is held in Upstate New York just east of Binghamton on State Route 79 and Doolittle Road in Quaquaga, New York. The three-day festival occurs in the last weekend of June.

The family-friendly gathering celebrates nature’s wonders and the imaginative world of elves and fairies and welcomes lovers of the enchanted to frolick in a wooded hollows between the Finger Lakes and the Catskill mountains.

Billed as a “Magical Renaissance Fair meets circus in the woods,” the theme of the festival is “A Midsummer’s Dream” and features a weekend of colorful pageantry and enchanting music for all who attend.

Planned activities and attractions include: parades, processions, jugglers, stilt walkers, silque dancers, magicians, wandering minstrels, tumblers, puppeteers, wing-makers, storytellers and a fashion show of woodland wearables.

Visitors to the magical event will also have the opportunity to meet the Faerie Queen, walk a Labyrinth inside a Wattleson Garden, cross over a troll bridge, and cheer mounted champions at a full-scale jousting tournament.

And, of course, visitors will be able to dance to live music, eat great local food, browse the works of artists and craftsmen in the merchant village, and dress in fairy wings and other finery of the forest.

The NY Fairie Festival began in 2009.
