See you at Faerie Con 2008!


Faericon brings magic of Faerieworlds, the West Coast’s premiere mythic music festival, to the East Coast. Array yourself in your most beautiful faerie finery, don your wings, gather your friends and family and cross the threshold! Once inside, you will find the largest gathering of faerie artists and authors in the world who look forward to meeting you, amazing, magical apparel, beautiful jewelry, mysterious masks, handmade crafts, fashion shows, performers, musicians, storytellers, exhibitions, panel and workshops.

And at night, the gates of Faerie open once more at the Good Faerie and Bad Faerie Masquerade Balls at the Famous Trocadero Theater, acclaimed last year as the astounding highlight of FaerieCon. Look deep into your heart: are you a Good Faerie or are you a Bad Faerie? Make your choice, create your costume, and dance the night away in the Magical Realm.

Last year, FaerieCon presented the US premiere performances by the acclaimed German bands, Qntal and Estampie, who delivered show stopping sets. This year, we present the US Premiere performances by the celebrated Dutch Celtic band, Omnia, the magical Spanish Faerie musician, Priscilla Hernandez and the return of Faerieworlds and Faeriecon headlining favorite, Woodland.
We believe that the revitalizing, healing and transforming spirit of faerie is alive and moving actively in our lives: faerie inspires and provokes, heals and reveals, illuminates and transcends. At FaerieCon, we invite you to enter the Realm as your magical self and release the beautiful, faerie spirit that shines inside of you!

Surrender to the glamour of faerie and join us!

In the words of internationally acclaimed faerie artist, Brian Froud:

“To dress as a faerie, donning wings, is to actively join in the dance, to be connected to creative spirit. Graceful or ecstatic dance; the radiant, rhythmic heartbeat; friendship; music; all these move easily across the boundaries, transcending language, race, and time. Such activities extend a joyful hand across the threshold. At Faerieworlds, we ring the bells of faerie invitation. The people come. More importantly, the faeries come too.”

Come and answer the call!
