Parking for Fairie Festival is located off-site at a neighboring farm on Pierceville Road and is $5 (cash only) per vehicle. Please follow signs for Official Festival Parking.
Handicapped parking is located near the entrance to the Festival.
We encourage you to carpool to the Festival. Carpooling saves on gas and parking fees, and is a kinder option for our Earth.
Parking is $5- cash only. The on-site ATM is only available once inside the Fairie Festival.
We recommend the Hampton Inn in Shrewsbury/Glen Rock, a Fairie Festival sponsor for many years. Many of our performers and vendors stay at this hotel, so you will likely get to rub wings with other fae during your stay.
For those who prefer to camp, we are told many of our attendees camp at the nearby Codorus State Park.
Other accommodations can be found in Shrewsbury and York, PA, and in Hunt Valley, MD, all within about a half hour drive of Spoutwood.
Yes! We welcome four-legged friends at the Fairie Festival!
Pets are allowed at the Fairie Festival, but they must be kept on a leash, cleaned up after, and are the owner’s responsibility at all times. Should your four-legged friend pose any problems while at the festival, we may ask you to remove him/her from the festival grounds. We are expecting 12,000+ people over the weekend, a few thousand each day, so please take this into consideration when choosing whether or not you bring your dog, cat, rabbit, etc with you.
Yes! We encourage everyone to dress up in their fairie finest for the Festival.
No. Spoutwood has a NO WEAPONS policy. No toy, replica, or real weapons allowed. Please leave them at home. Guests bringing weapons to the gate will be asked to return them to their cars.
Some performances may include pre-approved prop weapons, ONLY during performance.
Parking is $5 cash only. The Festival Front Gate usually cannot process cards (our connection at the Front Gate is limited, sometimes unavailable) – please bring cash for your entrance fee or buy your tickets online in advance.
Some vendors accept credit cards. However, some vendors only take cash, and there have occasionally been technical difficulties with card readers. There will be an ATM on site, but we also recommend that folks bring some cash or checks just in case.
Yes! There will be an ATM located near the Maypole Court.
Many of our vendors are only able to accept cash payment, so we do our best to provide an ATM for our guests. Nevertheless, we do recommend that folks bring some cash or checks just in case technical difficulties occur.
All are welcome at Fairie Festival. Individuals with wheelchairs and other mobility aids do attend. We provide handicapped parking near the entrance to the Fest.
However, please note that the Festival takes place on a working farm in the rolling hills of Glen Rock, Pennsylvania. As such, there are hills, rocky terrain, and if it rains, a lot of mud on the Festival Grounds. The Farm can be rough on wheelchairs and scooters.
If you have questions or concerns about accessibility, feel free to email Amy Fae, Festival Coordinator, at AdminiFae@Spoutwood.org.
Smoking is allowed ONLY in designated smoking areas. This includes smoking of e-cigarettes. The Festival has two smoking courts and two separate e-cig courts: one of each is located by the Sunshine Court area, and the other up on Frodo’s Hill.
Signs for smoking courts are posted around the Festival, and you can always ask a Yellow Page or other staff member where the nearest smoking court is.
Spoutwood Farm is covered in growing things, including poison ivy and thorny plants. There are also a lot of rocks and gravel on the Festival grounds, as well as ticks. While we do our best to control the poison ivy and keep our pathways clear, we strongly encourage you to protect your feet and wear shoes during your visit.
YES. Please wear shoes and protect your feet. There are washing stations by the port-a-potties to wash hands, should you think you’ve come into contact with those pesky little leaves-of-three.
We do our best to select food vendors who serve a range of foods, including options for those with dietary restrictions such as vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. While not all vendors will have all of these options available, most of our guests are able to find plenty of delicious treats at the Festival.
Fairie Festival is an alcohol-free event. No alcohol will be for sale onsite, and we request that you leave yours at home for after-revels. No obvious or public inebriation will be tolerated.
