Brookby Enchanted - June 4-7 and 11-14, 2015
This event has now concluded, but thanks to everyone who visited and volunteered we were able to raise $19,000 for our Grand Rapids Symphony! We will be doing another Fairy Walk in 2017! Stay tuned...
The Brookby Estate, which is a historical Grand Rapids landmark on the grounds of Aquinas College, is beautiful in the Spring. Join us for a tour of the home, furnished by Kindel, and enjoy art that is on loan from two private collections featuring Grand Rapids artists Mathias Alten, Reynold Weidenaar and Stephen Duren. Then, tour the grounds to be transported to a magical place featuring fairy homes like those seen below. Many local artists and craftsmen will create these whimsical scenes for your enjoyment. Purchase fun fairy wings and wands for your children at our gift shop - this will make a great afternoon with the family! There will be a "fairy map" for kids (and adults) to find specific houses and experience the magic!
