Every Friday in July and August is Fairy Friday at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. On these days, the free activities in the Bibby and Harold Alfond Children’s Garden concentrate on the fairy realm. Of course, fairy, elf, gnome, and wizard costumes are welcome!

See below for a schedule of the fun-filled activities that will delight girls and boys. And kids can also build fairy  houses in the Fairy House Villages at the Gardens any day. 

All fairy activities are included in the price of admission. A schedule of the day’s events will also be posted in the Visitor Center.
