Twenty of the state's public libraries celebrate stories, both traditional and lesser known, at the first-ever Vermont Fairy Tale Festival, this month in Killington. Each participating library will sponsor a booth focused on a different tale — from Jack and the Beanstalk to The Musicians of Bremen — giving visitors a chance to learn the story and create a related item to take home. Food and craft vendors, Viking reenactors, professional storytellers and local artists will provide additional fairy-focused fun. The library will also be working with nearby Gifford Woods State Park to install fairy houses along one of the park's hiking trails and provide free passes to the park on the day of the festival. Guests are encouraged to come in costume — and pose for photo ops with volunteers dressed like they just stepped out of a storybook.
