Welcome to the 2017 Corn Hill Arts Festival! We hope families will join us in our Community & Family Fun area located off Adams Street. You’ll will find many free & low cost activities that inspire and delight kids of all ages!

5th Annual Fairy Houses Tour

Cost: Free

Kids of all ages will enjoy exploring the 5th Annual Fairy Houses Tour, where you will see approximately 65 creatively designed and built houses built from all natural materials. Fairy Houses are whimsical structures built with all natural materials by individuals, families, and teams. Vote for your favorite in our “People’s Choice Award” contest.

The Tour is inspired by the “Fairy Houses Series” of books by Tracy Kane. Tracy is responsible for re-igniting the Fairy House movement in the United States. Her goal is to get children and adults alike out into nature, exploring and experiencing its wonders. You can enter to build your own Fairy House for the Tour at https://www.fairyhouses.com/build-a-fairy-house-for-the-corn-hill-arts-festival/

We’ll have a Fairy on hand to grant wishes and interact with the kids!
