Fantasy Faire at Relay Weekend

This year we have a nineteenth Faireland, present only during the Relay Weekend on the track. Come wander the slumbering forests, almost ready for their annual rest within the Mists, come meet other Fairelanders, finalize your Faire shopping, and enjoy the touch of peace the Fairelands always bring — before you’ll head out for another lap on the track.

Silvasomnia (RFL CURE) was designed by Saiyge Lotus. It is sponsored by Jeanette’s Joint with additional support from Secrets of Gaia, the Ravenheart Museum, Eagle’s Photo Studio, Teegle, the Lost Unicorn Gallery, the Dark Unicorns of Lovelace, Trinity Clothing and Little, Big Designs. The official Fantasy Faire gachas along with numerous other RFL vendors from our sponsors are available for the weekend.

Drifts of Anamnesis, by Caitlin Tobias

Wow.

There’s no other word for this year’s Faire: it’s been astonishing. As we enter the Fairelands’ final few days, we wanted to thank each and every one of you for the remarkable things we’ve all accomplished together. It’s a dark time in the Outworld, but here in the Fairelands you’ve shown us that the light of hope is stronger, brighter and more powerful than ever.
