Join us as we turn the Hopedale Parklands into an enchanted forest & temporary home for fairies, gnomes, trolls, elves and all magical folk! You'll stroll the pathways with your family & friends while discovering magical homes tucked into the landscape. Find a new adventure around every corner with several performers & vendors placed throughout. Held in June with our friends in the Hopedale Park Commission. The 4th Annual Hopedale Fairy Walk will take place on Saturday, June 12, 2021 10am - 4pm. Read all the details below!

The fairy walk will take place along the one mile stretch of the blue trail between the Bath House and the Rustic Bridge. The entrance is just past the Bath House behind 76 Dutcher Street, Hopedale, MA. The houses/doors/fairies and vendors will be placed along the 1 mile stretch of the blue trail from the bath house entrance to the Rustic Bridge. This event is hosted by the Friends of Historic Hopedale in conjunction with the Hopedale Park Commission. This is not a loop so keep in mind that it's one mile in and one mile back. Bring your camera, the scenery is amazing!

New for 2021: For 2021 we’re letting our builders choose to create houses as usual ($25) or fairy doors/fairy folk out of natural materials as a no cost option. We will implement a no contact drop off over a longer period of time.
Fairy houses can be made out of any materials but must be under 2’ x 2’ in size. You may include a sign under 18” x 18”. House builders may pick up their houses after the event on June 12 between 4p-5p or June 13 noon-3p at the Bath House.
Fairy doors and fairies that you create should be no larger than a foot tall. No platforms, buildings or signs. They should be made of natural materials (twigs, pinecones, stones, moss, acorns, bark, etc & whatever glue or twine etc you’ll hold it together with). Natural materials fairy doors and fairies will become permanent residents of the Hopedale Parklands.
We will be posting examples of both choices on our event page. Please visit the ‘2021 Hopedale Fairy Walk’ Facebook event page for ideas!
Individuals, groups or businesses are welcome to participate by submitting a house, door or fairy. Mail your application & drop off your creation to the FOHH.
No applications or creations will be accepted after June 9, 2021.
No contact drop off! Any time between May 1 – June 9, 2021. Email for address to drop off your fairy houses/doors/fairies. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
