Spring Fair and Fairy House Stroll — Sat. May 19, Rain or Shine!
Gardner’s Unitarian Universalist Society will hold a Spring Fair and Fairy House Stroll on Saturday May 19, 2018 starting at 8:30 am and until 3pm. Come stroll through our gardens and grounds to discover many fairy houses! The UUSG Spring Fair and Fairy House Stroll will also feature a “Bingo Scavenger Hunt” for guests of all ages, with a prize for everyone who participates. Free craft activities for children will be available outdoors if the weather is fair. Indoors, guests can “bid” on bargains at the teacup auction, and breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase at the Daffodil Café. Vendors will offer a variety of crafts and wares including the opportunity to make your own fairy house. Fairy Floss (cotton candy) and other treats will also be for sale.
We've Got You Covered
Preparations are underway for the Fairy House Stroll tomorrow, Sat. May 19. Strolling guests and fairies will stay nice and dry under our tents. Free indoor activities for kids, as well as warm shelter for all. See you there!
Call for Fairy House Builders
We invite you or your group to create a fairy house for display outside in our gardens and grounds! Your fairy house can be made of any combination of materials — natural, found objects, pre-made items, or whatever suits your fancy (and of course the fairies)! Use a tray or or other material for a base. Your fairy house can be any size, but it must be able to be easily picked up and moved by mere mortals. To include a fairy house in our event, fill out a Fairy House Submission Form online, or download and return a hard copy to UUSG, 66 Elm Street, Gardner, MA 01440. The deadline for registration is Wednesday, May 16. For more information, contact us.

We plan to fill the Fellowship Hall with crafters, artists and specialty vendors! We know that it's a busy time of year and hope you'll want to be there to show your craftsmanship, artistry and special wares. For more information, download our letter to vendors.
The church will be offering delicious food at our Daffodil Café and a teacup auction to which we ask that you donate a small item. If you would like to join us, please download the registration form and return with your paymen
