Fairy House / Hobbit Habitat Contest
To encourage creativity and the arts this year we are hosting a Fairy House / Hobbit Habitat Contest. On Saturday, May 14th and Sunday, May 15th the contest will be held and the winners will be determined each day (time and location to be announced). All Fairy Houses and Hobbit Habitats must be constructed of natural materials and on a portable, sturdy base for table display. The habitat or house can be anything you wish (it must be family-appropriate). Please ensure your name and phone number are clearly labeled on your house.
Information will be posted as you enter the festival, along with the location of the Fairy Garden.
Contest is open to two age groups: 4-14 years and 15 years and up.
