Save the date!

Another year has quickly passed and we are less than two months away from the 4th Annual Fairy Festival! We were thrilled with last year's response and felt honored to be able to contribute $11,500 to Kenya Keys with your help.

This year, the Fairy Festival will be on Friday, September 9th at 6:00 PM. Please save the date and invite your friends and neighbors.

We are pleased to announce that the beneficiary of the proceeds of this year's festival will be the Tanner Dance Program. Like Willa's Workshop, Tanner Dance is committed to protecting the magic of childhood and its programs reach more than 5,000 children through its arts education  programs in public schools. Its programs and services have been designed with children in mind – allowing them to discover, explore, create, and most importantly, find joy.  For more information on this year's partner, go to

If you are interested in helping with the Fairy Festival, please e-mail us at We will have our Fairy Market again this year and welcome any donations of handicrafts, art, and creative items as well as items for the raffle. It is so exciting to hear about kids making items for this year's Festival and we are so impressed with the abundance of talent and generosity in these individuals! We will be having a unique Sweet Shoppe this year as a fundraiser in addition to storytelling, fairy dancing, a fairy garden and other fun activities. The Pirates will also be returning by popular demand!

Lastly, please send your nominations for this year's FAIRY GODMOTHER Award to Last year's recipient, Kim Butler, will be passing the wand to another individual that exemplifies service, generosity, creativity and kindness. Watch for the finalists to be announced in August on our blog.

As always, sincere thanks for supporting Willa's Workshop and helping us make this magical night a meaningful and magical one.
