Every year the Fairelands return to us in new shapes and forms, bringing with them new lands and creatures, mountains and forests, streams and lakes, and such stories that one could spend the whole Faire trying to puzzle them out and still scratch only the surface.
This is the first glimpse into the Fairelands of 2021, descriptions of the lands that will serve as the shopping regions. There will also be other regions for non-shopping entertainment, but those details are still shrouded in the Mists.
It’s time. It’s time to turn our weary eyes from the darkness toward the approaching spring. Toward the approaching Fairelands, the promise of hope and delight.
This year Fantasy Faire will run from Thursday April 22 through Sunday May 9. Following the familiar Faire tradition, the busy event schedule will wrap already on Sunday May 2, leaving the rest of the Faire days free for more relaxed exploration.
The application for sponsors and stores is already open, so whether you’re interested in bringing your creations to the Faire or sponsoring the return of the Fairelands in various shapes or forms, check out and fill the form. Further questions on stores, sponsoring opportunities, donations, and anything that has to do with money should be sent to Elizabeth Tinsley (often online as FantasyFaire Resident).

Designed by Briony Writer and Dawny Daviau, it has key features of the LitFest to introduce newcomers to what the Literary and Fantasy Faire consists of and hopefully some injokes for regular LitFest visitors to enjoy!
When the Fairelands disappear, where do they go? Surely, as is commonly said at the terminus of every Faire, they fade away into the very Mists that spawned them. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
But then, when the Fairelands fade, where do the Mists go? Do they too fade into a more elementary matter? Or do they pack their bags, take an all-expenses paid vacation to Hawaii, and sip Mai Tais by the beach?
