Fairy Festival at the Botanical Gardens
May 15, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Join us for our Wegmans Family Days at the annual Fairy Festival! Fairies have taken over the Botanical Gardens! Visitors will be able to walk into the secret world of fairies. Skip through the Botanical Gardens with your favorite set of wings on a magical scavenger hunt for a prize at the end! Peek into a charming fairy village, a model train and talk with educators about interesting plants, winged pollinators and fairies galore. Visit the pollinator friends from Hahn’s Honey Bees to learn more about the importance of pollinators, and check out the Botanical Gardens’ live beehive. Don’t forget to visit with Prehistoric World to interact with some colorful creatures that might be found in a fairy forest. Prehistoric World is New York’s only reptile zoo where visitors can interact with animals and get hands on with an array of amazing species. Shop with Green Apothecary Shop and learn about the importance of healthy lawns with the Erie County Environmental Management Council and their Spokesgnome, Frederick Lawn Gnomested!
Please note that some vendors will have items available for purchase at a separate price from admission.
Our Nature Book Drive with the Buffalo Bookmobile will also be going on March 21 through April 30, 2022 as a part of the WNY Earth Day Challenge through Erie County. Bring in a book and earn points towards the challenge throughout the whole month! #WNYEARTHDAYCHALLENGE
