The Festival of Legends is a celebration of the mythic arts and the magic of life itself. It is a playground for the imagination – for children as well as adults – and an escape from the mundane world. It is a journey to the romantic by-gone eras that never were, and an exploration of the fantastical realms that have always been. The inhabitants are magicians and musicians, acrobats and comedians, artists and crafters, proud knights and fairytale creatures. Step into the Festival of Legends, and step into a place of wonder.

This year's theme is the Mystic Circus. What would it look like if faeries ran a magical circus? Join The Festival of Legends and find out as we celebrate with food, games, music, fantastical characters, story tellers, and so much more!
