Come experience our weekend of magic, beauty, and enchantment as faeries, trolls, wizards, and humans come together to celebrate the wonders of nature. Enjoy activities, special performers, storytellers, specialty vendors, music, and food trucks at Belle Grove Plantation. This event is family-friendly, and we encourage you to bring along our little “sprites” for a day of creating lifelong memories.
Belle Grove Plantation is a beautiful riverfront property full of wooded areas, open fields, a mansion, and river views. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets and enjoy a picnic with a view of the river. Enjoy our food trucks, but please no outside food or beverages.
Make your reservations for crafty activities in our Sprites Activities Tent. Grab a ride on our barrel train. Or set down for a lovely Faerie Afternoon Tea inside the mansion.
