BALTIMORE – "Once upon a time in a kingdom not far away…"
The Enoch Pratt Free Library transforms itself into the magical and enchanted "Pratt Kingdom" to celebrate the 9th annual Fairy Tale Festival. Throughout the month of April, free events and programs are scheduled at all Pratt locations to celebrate the magnificence of fairy tales.
The festival kicks-off with a Fairy Tale Extravaganza weekend at the Central Library:
Fairy Tale Extravaganza
Saturday, April 2, 10am to 3pm
Sunday April 3, 1pm to 3pm
Central Library Main Hall and Meyerhoff Children’s Garden
400 Cathedral Street
Baltimore, Maryland 21201
Leave the evil stepsisters at home and enjoy a weekend of celebration of fairy tales and faraway lands. All throughout the Central Library’s Main Hall, children will be able to be a prince or princess for a day. Free programs include live music, family crafts, magicians, dogs from Pets on Wheels, Cinderella’s glass slipper and the Fairy Tale Ball.
"The Fairy Tale Festival is part of our commitment to bring families together and highlights the importance of reading, imagination and learning," said Carla D. Hayden, Chief Executive Officer of the Enoch Pratt Free Library. "There is nowhere else in Baltimore that offers this type of free programs all month long."
The Enoch Pratt Free Library’s Fairy Tale Festival is sponsored by Aegon.
