Elves and Fairies

Last week I had the chance to take part in one of the craziest events of the year. The Elfia festival is an ode to imagination, a trip to the magic realm of all possibilities. For two glorious days, participants are free to dress as they please and make their dreams come true by playing the roles of their favorite heroes. The festival grounds turn into a sort of enchanted garden, where guests have a chance to meet face to face characters from fantasy novels or movies, from fairy tales or history. I was surprised to see that people of all ages are joining the event, but perhaps for one day everyone should be allowed to forget worries and the passage of time. The festival is definitely an opportunity to have fun in amazing locations- the spring edition takes place on the grounds of Castle de Haar near Utrecht, while the autumn edition takes place in the gardens of the Arcen Castle, close to Venlo. Two chances to let your imagination fly and give life a bit of color. See the event’s site below:
