Meet some of your favorite fairy tale characters and magical creatures!

Enjoy an afternoon frolicking in Highfield Discovery Garden as your favorite fairy tales come to life! Create your own magical crafts, strike a bargain at the fairy trading post, enjoy a Madcap Puppets show and more.

As you wind through garden, stop by vendor booths to purchase your own fairy adornments or grab a bite to eat at local food trucks.
