Noblesville Creates Celebrates the 11th Annual Welcome to Fairyville Event 

The 11th annual Welcome to Fairyville event, presented by Duke Energy, alights on the Noblesville Creates campus April 19-22, with crafts and activities for all ages and most events free.

“Welcome to Fairyville is our most joyous celebration of the year, a time when we celebrate the return of spring, the endless creativity of our community, and the youthful adventurer inside our own hearts,” says Noblesville Creates Director Ailithir McGill. “The magic of Fairyville is that it brings out the kid in all of us and inspires wonder and curiosity that help us see beautiful downtown Noblesville in a whole new way.”

The annual event is centered around Earth Day and places a heavy emphasis on outdoor, nature-themed activities. In addition to the scheduled events that are offered throughout downtown Noblesville, there will be options for walk-in and take-home projects through local arts partners. McGill describes the event as a fun celebration that promotes the mission of Earth Day while also supporting local businesses and artists.

“My team looks forward to Fairyville every year because it gives us an extra outlet for all sorts of creativity. From identifying the best ways to include dozens of different artists and merchants, to figuring out how to build a giant salamander puppet, this program is a wonderful challenge!” says McGill. “We, along with the more than two dozen businesses and organizations who team up to bring Fairyville to the community, look forward to welcoming everyone to the Fairyville Trail!”
