UPDATE: For the first time in 26 years, the May Day Fairie Festival had to cancel the final day, Sunday May 7, due to safety issues. Although we understand that some of you may be disappointed you did not get to attend, please know that our team is heartbroken, and currently working on recovering from the devastation of the cancellation. Please bear in mind that this annual event is not only a fun celebration, but it is also the primary fundraiser for Spoutwood Farm Center, a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational farm. Fairie Festival supports the Farm’s operations year-round. We are working on our refund and cancellation policy for all ticket holders who were unable to attend and we will share that information as soon as possible. Please check the email that you used when you purchased your tickets for messages from Spoutwood Farm. Be sure to watch your SPAM and JUNK filters to be safe. We will also update our Facebook pages and events as soon as we send out the ticketing update to ticket holder emails. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated during this process. Please share this message with anyone you know that has concerns about the status of the refund process. Kubiando!
“It is with great sadness that we must announce that tomorrow, Sunday, May 7, for the first time ever, the May Day Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm is officially closed due to safety concerns at both Forbes (our parking farm) and at Spoutwood. This was a difficult decision made by Spoutwood and Forbes together. The mud fairies have made their intentions very clear and we must respect them, Keeping all of our vendors, volunteers, performers, patrons, and participants SAFE is our top priority.
We are grateful to the township and fire department for their tremendous help and support this year, and we would like to reiterate that this decision was made by Spoutwood and Forbes Farms.
We will be sending emails to the monthly meeting volunteer list, the volunteer signup lists, and all who applied on the volunteer application tonight. We are also posting on social media and telling everyone who is still on the Farm.
Please help get the word out to people in a positive way. We appreciate each and every one of you and everything you do for the Farm and the Festival.
Thank you and Squishiando, my fae friends.”
