Fridays in July and August are full of fun at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens for little fairies, gnomes, elves, and wood sprites! The Bibby and Harold Alfond Children’s Garden is the perfect place for Sugarplum Fairy music and dancing on the maze, fairy puppet shows, stories, dress-up, crafts, fairy yoga, games, the Great Bubble Machine and, of course, building fairy houses. See the 2015 Fairy Friday schedule below.
Activities on Fairy Fridays are free with paid Gardens admission, and no reservations are needed. A schedule for each day will be posted in the Visitor Center.
