The dress code is as whimsical as the event lineup at the Faerie and Earth Festival (F.A.E.). “Come and wear your fairy wings, your earth hat or sparkle up with glitter as we explore the magical realms,” says a press release. In addition to faerie dust and glitter, festivalgoers can expect an assortment of vendors, music, puppeteers, faerie troupe performers, storytelling, workshops, face paintings and more. Proceeds from the event benefit The Center for Honey Bee Research in Asheville. The F.A.E. festival takes place on Saturday, May 17, 10 a.m-5 p.m., at the Highland Lake Cove Retreat Center in Flat Rock. $10/adults, $5/kids. Tickets at the gate. facebook.com/fairyandearthfestival. Photo courtesy of Whee Ahh Faerie Kin
