Below, you will find a description of the festival we hosted last fall. This year, we are planning the Vermont Viking Invasion and it will be held September 21-23, with the 22nd being open to the public from 10-6pm free of charge. You’ll see authentic Viking encampments and some of the best sword fighting in the world as we welcome Vikings from 8 states and 3 countries.

Our organizational meeting for the next Fairy Tale event is set for Saturday, August 18 at 10am here at the library. All are welcome.
The Vermont Fairy Tale Festival: A Celebration of Vermont’s Public Libraries
Saturday, September 23, 2017 10-4pm
Sherburne Memorial Library, Killington VT
The event is similar to a Renaissance Faire, but in this case each booth will be a different fairy tale. Kids and families can visit each tale, learn the story and make something to take home. Admission to the event is a non-perishable item for the food bank or an item for the humane society. The event will take place rain or shine. Killington -Pico Rotary and Killington Fire and Rescue will be food vending for part of the day. We’ll have craft vendors, Viking fighters, and two artists in residence to help participants create flower fairies. We also have to amazing storytellers scheduled to be here performing throughout the day. Gifford Woods State Park will be hosting some fairy houses the day of the festival that will adorn one of their more popular hiking trails. A huge thanks to our sponsors: Casella Waste Management and the Greater Killington Women’s Club.
