Fall Match Donation

Once upon a time, Fairytale Town’s 2020 calendar was filled with large public events like book festivals, puppet shows, overnight campouts, and more!

Then came the pandemic.

During this time, we have, and will continue, to serve our mission of promoting the imagination, creativity, and education of children.

When we were closed, we made daily Fairytale Town videos, featuring storytimes, craft activities, and our animal family, so that families felt like they were experiencing the fun of Fairytale Town in the comfort of their homes. We found ways to offer our Summer FunCamps, with the utmost safety precautions, so that kids could learn and play while their parents were away. When we reopened our gates, we implemented stringent safety efforts to protect the public with continuous wipedown of surfaces, LOTS of new hand sanitizer stations, capped attendance, and more. And as we move forward into the Fall we continue to serve our community by offering Workshops, FunCamps, many and other fun programs!

Amid the crisis, Fairytale Town has found ways to brighten young lives. But the pandemic has visited severe financial challenges upon the park.

Please consider donating to non-profit Fairytale Town so that we can continue to inspire and delight children in these hard times. Right now your gift will be doubled up to $5,000 total thanks to a matching offer by our friends at the law firm Delfino Madden.

Pandemic Safety at Fairytale Town

Wondering about pandemic safety at Fairytale Town? Here are a few things to put your mind at ease.

You’re outside!

The risk of COVID-19 transmission drops exponentially in the outdoors, especially when the interactions are in passing.

No big crowds, so easy social distancing.

By controlling and capping admissions, Fairytale Town facilitates social distancing so families have plenty of space to play freely.

The park is sanitized continuously.

The Fairytale Town team diligently wipes down frequently touched surfaces and playsets throughout the day.

Cleaning your little one’s hands is easy.

Thanks to dozens of new hand cleanser dispensers throughout the park, kids and families can sanitize easily. A dispenser is within sight at virtually every spot in the park.

Face coverings provide protection.

In compliance with the governor’s order, all guests age three and up are required to wear face coverings.

Risks have been removed.

To maximize your children’s safety, the park has deactivated select play areas like the Sherwood Forest play structure; and indoor spaces are not accessible.

Touchless transactions.

Your money transactions can be completely touchless thanks to high-tech credit card scanners at the Box Office and café; and paid reservations can be made online.
