Fairy in Butterfly Garden

Gnomes, Trolls, and Fairy Folk

Gather at The Strong on April 22 & 23 for a magical weekend filled with your favorite fantasy characters. Flutter your way into the Paychex Theater to meet Tinkerbell and friends, then try on wings at the fairy dress-up station in the Adams Atrium. Help gnomes find their way through a garden and make your own troll friend to take home! Enjoy Troll dance parties throughout the day to show off your whimsical moves!

Also, be sure to check out a fairy house presented by the Corn Hill Arts Festival and create your own. (The full festival takes place in Rochester on July 8 & 9, 2023.)

When children pretend, they’re using their imaginations to move beyond the bounds of reality. A stick can be a magic wand. A sock can be a puppet. A small child can be a superhero.
