I don’t know if it’s their close resemblance to angels or what, but a few years ago my girls became obsessed with fairies. We’ve built fairy gardens, we wear fairy costumes, we read fairy books, we create fairy houses wherever we go and we attend every fairy event we can get our hands on. If your family has a fairy fan, we have some great fun on the calendar all over central Indiana and even a little further.

There are many reasons to visit Richmond, Indiana but the trail of Fairy Doors is reason alone. Only about 90 minutes from Indy, make a day or weekend trip. With so many free activities in Richmond, this is one of our favorite places to visit. During the winter, the Fairy Trail becomes a “Frozen Fairy Trail” during the week of the Richmond Ice Festival.
There’s nothing better than when little fairies and sprites climb out of cars and flutter up your driveway in their fairy finery. Oh, the stories you’ll tell when you pull together a sweet group of friends and have a great time. We found the perfect recipe for a backyard fairy party that can be adjusted to fit many budgets.
