Fairy House Festival
sunday, June 9
noon-4pm, Artpark Lower Park
All Day Pass $10
Fairies are everywhere, but rarely seen by us. They’re a hidden folk. But on special occasions, they appear to humans to celebrate life, happiness, and nature. The Fairy House Festival at Lewiston’s Artpark is one of these occasions. Fairies visit the park, sharing their magic with children and adults alike. This year, however, is particularly special… Are you in?
At the Fairy House Festival, you will love exploring different immersive areas and playful experiences, inspired by art and nature. All are invited to build or discover small "fairy dwellings" throughout the park. This year, the Festival returns to its original Lower Park location!

FEATURED ACT: DAKHABRAKHA
The Festival culminates with a stunning performance by the Ukranian Ethno-Chaos band DAKHABRAKHA at 4pm.
Rolling Stone named DakhaBrakha "Best Breakout Act" at Bonnaroo in 2014.
The name DakhaBrakha is original, outstanding and authentic at the same time. It means “give/take” in the old Ukrainian language. Accompanied by Indian, Arabic, African, Russian and Australian traditional instrumentation, the quartet’s astonishingly powerful and uncompromising vocal range creates a trans-national sound rooted in Ukrainian culture.

featured Artist: Virginia Melnyk Designs "Color Constellation"
Step inside the "Color Constellation," an interactive installation by Virginia Melnyk, made up of bright fabric star-like shapes. Visitors are invited to enter inside each shape to be immersed and saturated in color, get your selfie-cam ready!
Virginia’s work is deeply embedded in the explorations of playfulness in design. Her projects often bring in color and bits of whimsy. Often working with off the shelf or uncommon materials such as textiles. Most of her work is meant to be tactile and engaged with. MORE INFO
