Fairy House Contest


A Fairy House is a small structure where fairies can live in harmony with nature. It can be of any design that is made entirely from natural materials such as sticks, bark, pine cones, acorns, pebbles, shells, feathers, etc. as fairies know not to harm anything that is growing. Your house should be built upon a base so it can be easily transported.

Please submit between 10am and 12pm on the day of the Fairy Faire. Throughout the day fairies from near and far will gather in song and dance to cast their ballots for “Best of Show.” Ballots will be tallied at 3:00 pm with prizes and ribbons awarded at 3:30.

Fairy House Building competition entry is $5. A $50 Grand Prize will be awarded in both the Adult and Youth categories, with additional prizes for both groups.

The Fairy Faire will be held at Payne Park Auditorium, 2100 E. Laurel St., Sarasota. Fairy Faire admission is $5, kids 12 & under are free. For more information email Programs@TheSpiritUniversity.com or call 941-544-5874. FAIRY FAIRE INFO

Fairy House Contest Rules:

Fairy House Contest: the contest will be divided into children (12 and under) and adults. In the children’s division, the artwork must have been accomplished with minimal help from adults (helping with sharp knives, hot glue guns, etc.)

Drop off is from 10 am – 12 pm near the stage. Voting will run from 12:00-3:00pm.  Winners will be announced at 3:30pm. Houses may be picked up at that time.

  • Use natural materials – dry grasses, leaves, sticks, pebbles, shells, bark from a fallen tree, seed pods, acorns, berries, gourds, miniature pumpkins, pinecones, and flowers are a few examples.
  • All fairy houses must appear to be made entirely of natural components.  Hot glue, acrylic spray, twine and other man-made items can be used but must be completely concealed by natural elements.
  • Houses should be portable (maximum dimensions 16” by 16” and 24” high) – please use a sturdy base.
  • Please do not use any items of value in the houses as the The Spirit University is not responsible for any loss or damage.
  • The theme of the house may be anything you wish.
  • Please have your name and your house’s name clearly marked and attached to the house or the base.
