The event features stalls, music and other chances to join in. These include the opportunity to delve into the world of fairies, meet unicorns, and attend a “fairy school”, which has activities for children.
The most striking feature of the entire festival is the large array of costumes. Nearly everyone taking part dresses like a fairy (spelt ‘faery’ in this case, which is the older spelling). A world record attempt is sometimes held during the festival, when people try to break the record for the largest number of people dressed as a fairy in one place.
