Give a Gift to the Future of Fairytale Town

Support the Magic of Play on Giving Tuesday.

Since we opened our gates in August 1959, Fairytale Town’s mission has been to promote the imagination, creativity, and education of children through play. Fairytale Town is uniquely qualified to do this—not just because our programming ties play to early
literacy, or because of the 250,000 guests we serve each year from all walks of life—but because Fairytale Town is magical!

With your support, we can make needed upgrades to our beloved playsets and facility so we can better meet the demands of our growing, diverse community—and keep our facility as magical today as it was when it opened nearly 60 years ago.

We are asking you to make the most generous gift you can give so Fairytale Town can continue to spark children’s imagination, inspire their creativity, and stimulate their interest in reading and learning.

It’s easy to participate! Simply click on the link below to make an online donation by November 30.

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.

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.

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.

Mask-up Monday Mornings.

If you and your family feel more comfortable in a masked environment, Fairytale Town is implementing Mask-Up Monday Mornings.

During the two-hour period, masks will be required for all guests 3 years and up. The policy will be enforced. Guests who cannot wear masks are welcome to visit at any other time slot during the week.

Mask-Up Monday Mornings:
October 25 30: 9 am to 11 am

Mask-Up Monday Mornings are moving to Thursday starting in November:
November 4: 10 am – 12 am
November 11 : 10 am – 12 am
November 18 : 10 am – 12 am

Masks will continue to be optional at all other times.
