"It is with great sadness that we must announce that tomorrow, Sunday, May 7, for the first time ever, the May Day Fairie Festival at Spoutwood Farm is officially closed due to safety concerns at both Forbes (our parking farm) and at Spoutwood,” organizers said in an email.

“This was a difficult decision made by Spoutwood and Forbes together. The mud fairies have made their intentions very clear and we must respect them, keeping all of our vendors, volunteers, performers, patrons, and participants SAFE is our top priority. “

The email stated the organizers are working on procedures to refund ticket-holders as soon as possible.
