The Sherburne Memorial Library is proud to bring the very first Vermont Fairy Tale Festival to Killington in the fall of 2017. The festival is scheduled for Saturday, September 23, from 10-4pm at the Sherburne Library on River Road. We have more than twenty public libraries participating and showcasing 15 original fairy tales. Killington Fire and Rescue, along with Killington Rotary, has graciously agreed to do food concession for the event. New England storytellers Simon Brooks, and the wonderful Norah Dooley are scheduled performances. There will also be Viking re-enactments!
Craft vendors will be onsite selling fairy-tale-like items and Medieval fighters from all around the region will be here for various demonstrations. We encourage the public to wear your best fairy tale costume and we’ll have a variety of costumed characters available for photo opportunities. Each participant receives a bag at the gate with a program book and passport that will help you visit each of the fairy tales and make something to take home. Bring your whole family and come spend a few hours or enjoy the whole day! There is no price for admission, though we are asking that you bring a non-perishable food item for the local food bank or an item for the Humane Society. This event is sponsored by the Sherburne Friends of the Library.
