CANCELED: Fe Fi Fo Fun Fest & Spring Plant Sale
May 16 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19. IT WILL NOT BE RESCHEDULED. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT ONE OF OUR FALL FESTIVALS OR AT FE FI FO FUNFEST 2021.
Step into the world of Forest Giants and woodland faeries from on Saturday, May 16, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Fe Fi Fo FunFest . The spring celebration includes nature discovery stations, construction of the faerie village, a costume parade, giant tree giveaways, local food trucks, Isaac’s Café offerings and more.
Join us around the Visitor Center, as we celebrate magical creatures of all sizes. Hike our 2-mile loop to see our family of Forest Giants – Mama Loumari, Little Nis, and Little Elina then build a house for our smallest magical creatures – the faeries. Faerie Village will be expanded, spanning the length of the Olmsted Ponds behind the Visitor Center. As always, our wonderful team of Volunteer Naturalists will be on hand with discovery stations for hands-on activities with nature.
Don’t miss our annual parade of faeries, garden gnomes, prairie sprites, cave wizards, and other whimsical creatures. We’ll have a costume tent all morning, so if you need to borrow some mythical wares, we are here to help! The parade will depart from the Visitor Center at 1:30 p.m.
You can also pick out the perfect plants for your home garden at the SPRING PLANT SALE. Bernheim Select™ trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials await their new home in your spring landscape.
And don’t miss the Fe Fi Fo Run and Walk that morning starting at 8 a.m. Join Bernheim as participants race through Bernheim’s Giant Forest to find the Forest Giants. The Fe Fi Fo Run will consist of a 5K and 10K race, which will journey to all three Giants. Families and kids can participate in the 1-mile Fun Run, which will visit one of the Giants. Cost is $35 for the 5K, $45 for the 10K and $10 for the 1-mile Family Fun Run/Walk. Early bird registration lasts through March 31, 2020 for a $5 discount.
$10 per car environmental impact fee still applies for non-members.
