Wave Hill

Bronx

All Ages

Description: Bring your little fairies and gnomes to this weekend event to construct a tiny house in the woods fashioned from sticks and leaves (and a bit of pixie dust). Then take a break from building to hear about Wave Hill's fabled woodland fairies, with guest storyteller Rama Mandel. Sing along to live mandolin and accordion music with Jim Keyes (aka Jim the Gentle Giant), as he entertains with tales of faraway lands where make-believe creatures come to life. On Sunday, grown-ups can learn the mystical properties of witch hazel, snakeroot, and wolfsbane, and hear other horticultural myths on a folklore walk. Admission to the grounds is free all weekend. Call or visit the website for full schedule.
