The Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk is one of the most whimsical events in the state. This is an enchanting opportunity to explore an (almost) real fairy garden. Please join us for at our fifth annual Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk, a whimsical afternoon here at Salisbury’s own Historic, Pettengill Farm (circa 1792) and take a walk through our lush gardens, enchanted forest, and our serene marsh; it’s an event like no other.
The gems of the event are the nearly 200 Fairy and Gnome Homes, peppered throughout a one mile wooded path that leads to the salt marsh and back. Homes are created by very talented professionals, families, school children, and local businesses.
It's true, we have awesome FREE crafts and activities. We have all day live music, improv theater performances, and other entertainment. Yes, and we also have fun places to shop and souvenirs priced to please.
We are so filled with excitement and anticipation to take in this years meticulously created Fairy and Gnome homes, peppered throughout the most magical woods with a treat half way that will take your breath away, that only our beautiful seaside town could offer. Oh and of course, yummy food trucks. But what you can't see, is what we are most proud of. The magic that is ignited within the youngest to the oldest. Kids crouching in the woods discovering Fairy and Gnome homes - you'll hear the squeals and see the sparkle in their eyes when they think they have spotted one. It's the folks dancing to their favorite tunes in a sea of bubbles, or enjoying the quietness of the farm while watching the stillness of the pond. Not a care in the world or an ear for the "static" that exists outside of this magical event.
Tickets are on sale now and we offer FREE admission to home creators.
We hope you join us!
