Celebrate May Day at an event that promises to be full of magical and mythical fun for all ages.

Head to Settlers Park with family and friends on Saturday, May 4 to take part in the action from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Rachel Bixbe of Alchemy Wellness and Rachel Lynch of Healing Touch Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine and other supportive friends have come together to bring together a blend of traditions, time and talents while creating new magical moments.

The idea for the Faerie Festival came about when from Lynch’s personal experience. “I used to take my children to the Fairy Festival at Womanspace in Rockford until they stopped having the event,” Lynch said. “In the last few years, pictures have popped up in Facebook memories. I would always say I miss going to it.”

“Last fall I suggested to a couple of friends that we should have a fairy festival here in Rockton.

Rachel Bixbe was one of the first friends to say that she has been ready and waiting to have a fairy festival her entire life.”

Bixbe drew up her ideas and Lynch added her favorite things from past festivals.

The ladies then approached Christopher and Bridgett Holden of Reverent Henna at a prior event at Inkwell Books to see if they wanted to be a vendor. They replied that they would actually like to partner on the event. They proceeded to design the logo and fliers.

Bixbe is working on the design of the labyrinth (funded by the event organizers) with the help and support of Planning and Development Administrator Tricia Diduch and the Village of Rockton.

Behind the inspiration for the labyrinth was the one that Womanspace has. It is used for walking meditation to help lower blood pressure, with relaxation, emotional and mental health.

A labyrinth is a complicated irregular network of passages or paths in which it is difficult to find one’s way, otherwise it is similar to a maze. Labyrinths are designed to foster contemplation and spiritual transformation.

Faerie Festival guests are invited to the “Walk as one” at the1” Labyrinth Walk as part of “World Labyrinth Day” which is a global event. Be among the first to walk through the new labyrinth in Settlers Park.

When planning this first time event for Rockton, Lynch and Bixby struck a perfect blend of two different approaches toward reaching the community.

“My approach was to have a very kid style fairy festival,” Lynch said. Bixby wanted to fully incorporate the adults who like to dress up and to get magical.

“It has been a beautiful blending of the two. Hopefully, everyone will enjoy the event,” Lynch says.

There is no charge to come out and to create a day that is certain to be full of memories, “It is very important to us that anyone and everyone can come to the park that day to celebrate the blossoming of spring, enjoy nature with the people that you love and be entertained,” Lynch said.
