Live happily ever after at the Enoch Pratt Free Library’s 16th annual Fairy Tale Festival.
This year, the Pratt is partnering with Light City Baltimore to spread the joy of fairy tales across the city.
A month of enchanted events kicks off with the Fairy Tale Extravaganza, where the Maryland Historical Society will be transformed into an enchanted forest.
Saturday, April 7, 10am-3pm
Maryland Historical Society
201 W. Monument St.
Baltimore, MD 21201
As part of Light City, this year’s Extravaganza will include an illuminated tree house. Families can take pictures on the throne surrounded by fairy lights. Storytelling with TAHIRA begins at noon, followed by a Fairy Tale Ball with a live string quartet and dancing. Crafts, magic, face painting and other fairy tale fun will entertain crowds throughout the day.
The magical month continues throughout April with Fairy Tale Balls and events at branches across the Pratt Kingdom. “Fairy tales are an introduction to reading for many children,” says Pratt Library President & CEO Heidi Daniel. “We want to help spark their imagination by bringing those books to life and hopefully inspire a lifelong love of learning.”
The Enoch Pratt Free Library’s Fairy Tale Festival is sponsored by Transamerica.
