Farewell to the Fairelands 2018

The Fairelands of 2018 drifted into the Mists on Tuesday, leaving the Fairelanders feeling a mix of emotions: sadness for losing our second home for a year, happiness for all the shared joy and beauty, gratefulness for another amazing Faire and a longing for their return.

Haveit Neox filmed this farewell on the last day, going through all the Fairelands, mixing in some of the last parties, and then waiting for that final moment in The Story Well. Share the journey, the last memories, and rest assured that in the spring of 2019 the Fairelands will rise anew.

We raised almost 12 million lindens, Fairelanders. Over 48,000 US dollars. This was a record-breaking Faire, and you should all feel very proud and accomplished, and happy in the knowledge that you have been a part of something amazing and good. Take that knowledge with you for the rest of the year, hold that spirit high, and the world will be a better place, one small deed at a time.

Thank you.

LitFest Tours Part 14: Tales from Ardessa


Over the course of the Faire, Fairelanders joined tours of individual lands and told stories about them. These we are preserving on this website – and some will be made into special tales to be recorded for Fantasy Faire radio. We’re also going to share some of these stories here, and here are stories from the final tour, to Ardessa.

(Please note – these are the writings we have received to date. You can also read them on the Ardessa page here – where any further works inspired by Ardessa will be published)

Memorial Gardens

Memorial Gardens

Today is officially the final day of Fantasy Faire however the Faire will be accessible until the sims fade away. This year’s Faire was an explosion of activity and with over 11 million linden donated to Relay For Life it was a huge success! If you have not had time to visit the event, or would like to visit the sim with a little less lag, now is the time! There are plenty of shops to visit for all your last minute shopping needs. The designers this year have pulled out all the stops to create magic in our divine world. I like to build little reflection areas on my sims that represent each Faire and these beautiful benches by Artisan Fantasy are the perfect sim decor for your Fantasy Fair 2018 memorabilia.

Each designer’s store has at least 2 official Fantasy Faire vendors with newly created items. The proceeds of these sales go directly to the total being raised for Relay for Life. So, hit these vendor boards hard. To make things easy for you, we have created a shopping catalog that showcases over 750 of these exclusive items on Pinterest!  And, if you’d like to shop by your favorite creator, here is a list of their locations on the various sims.

Items in the above image that can be found at Fantasy Faire:
Memorial Bench and Monument by Artisan Fantasy ~ Available at Fantasy Faire on the Aetherea Sim {Final Days, Sim still open until they are taken down}
Round Wildflower Garden – yellow and orange by Simply Shelby ~ Available at Fantasy Faire on the Willows of Nienna Sim {Final Days, Sim still open until they are taken down}
