San Diego Botanic Garden’s Annual Fairy Festival

Saturday, June 18

10 am – 4 pm

Encinitas CA— Calling all Fairy Prince and Princesses! Children (and parents) are invited to celebrate summer at the annual Fairy Festival at the Hamilton Children’s Garden at San Diego Botanic Gardens in Encinitas on Saturday, June 18 from 10 am – 4 pm.

The Fairy Festival features fairy and garden themed crafts, where children can make anything from their own flower fairy doll to treasure chests; face painting; a fairy land to be explored; and an official fairy queen ready to have their picture taken with visitors to our magical garden. In addition to the crafting and shopping in the Fairyland Market, there will be great entertainment including Interactive Native Music with Marin Espinosa from 10:30 am – 12 pm and kid-friendly free-range folk music with San Diego favorites Hullabaloo from 1 – 2 pm. Food provided by Leucadia Pizza and Rita’s Italian Ice in Encinitas.

The Fairy Festival is a fun event in our nationally-acclaimed Hamilton Children’s Garden, a great atmosphere for children and families to interact with plants and nature. Youngsters are welcome to don wings and dress up in their favorite fairy costumes – or just come as they are – while enjoying an array of activities in the Garden.  The Hamilton Children’s Garden is the largest interactive children’s garden on the West Coast and provides a full acre of interactive exhibits offering children and their families the opportunity to experience the magic of the outdoors firsthand.

The Fairy Festival is free with paid admission or membership. Adult attendees are asked not to dress up for the Festival.
