2023 Faunfest in the Craft Wood
Saturday, August 26, 2023
Noon to 6:30 pm
The event will be held in White Hall, MD.
In the golden days of summer, grapes ripen ready for the coming harvest. Fauns gather before they harvest their grapes to celebrate the bounty of the harvest they will soon share to thank Dionysus and Demeter for their generosity with music, dance, games, and plays. The air is alive with song and the smell of freshly baked bread and the sweetness first fruits freshly picked. Pleased with the merriment, the gods offer their blessing on the fields and share the bounty of harvests past with fauns, satyrs, and the fae. LET US FROLIC in the Craftwood! The Grapes are soon to be harvested; let us come together and drink the Wine of past Grapes, and make merry!
30 Vendors come to market their handicrafts as the mythical creatures join in the celebration, dancing to the live music, eating small delicious cakes, and avoiding the pirates who have somehow inserted themselves into the story. A small River encircles the Craftwood, where you might find sirens luring you in, or perhaps they would like to take a selfie with you. Is that Dionysus there in that tent? Did you hear a harpist? What is that singing…?

August 26 will be the first FaunFest – a festival dedicated to the mythic beings associated with Wine, Wine Making, the Harvest (especially of grapes), and REVELRY! We look forward to the Elves, Faeries, Pixies, Merfolk, Humans, and Goblins all coming together in peace, to hawk their wares and find treasures.
