Fairy Tale Festival in Nashua

This weekend there will be a fairy tale festival in Nashua, NH. I wish it was in Nashville, TN instead! You can read more about the annual festival at Fairy Tale Festival promoting youth literacy in Nashua. Here's also a press release from the website which I'll copy below.

The 2009 SummerFun Fairy Tale Festival has been scheduled for Saturday, July 11, 2009 form Noon-3:00pm at Greeley Park. This year’s theme is Superheroes. Mayor Lozeua will kick things off with a Welcome Address and a fairy tale reading to all children in attendance.

All afternoon long there will be on-stage entertainment including musical treats from Enchanted, Peter Pan, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Mulan Pocahontas, Hercules, Beauty & The Beast & Lion King.

Other events include bounce houses, caricaturist, face painting, fairy art school, food and plenty of games. The festival concludes with a Childrens Parade at 2:45pm.

Fairy Tale Festival is free to the public, as is the vast majority of SummerFun Events. At our major events this year, Opening Day, Fairy Tale Festival and Childrens Day, we will be accepting donated food items which will be given to local food pantries.

What a charming idea! I hope all who attend have a great time and learn to love reading and fairy tales even more. There are many fairy tale related activities all around the country this summer from festivals to theatre to art. All this and no summer family movie blockbuster using a fairy tale in sight until winter...


  1. It would be great to have something like this near Nashville. There's The Smokey MT story telling fest in June.
    But no fairy event near by.

  2. Hi Thank you for thinking of the NH Fairy Tale Festival - it has grown check out our new face book pages for pictures and updates. ;-)
