• FAIRY DOORS
free • outdoors
Fairies have taken over the Shakespeare Garden! We’ve not had an actual fairy sighting yet, but we’ve discovered tiny fairy doors throughout the garden (and in a couple of other spots around the theater).
Come see for yourself!
To welcome the fairies — and let our friends admire their handiwork — we’ve planned some springtime fun. Join us in the garden for our Spring Music Series with live music, springtime playlists from some of ASF’s friends, and Frios Gourmet Pops*.
Fairy Doors and the Spring Music Series is free and family-friendly. You can safely enjoy as you listen and explore. Special thanks to our generous partners: Clef Works, Frios Montgomery, and Holley Steel.
*Free while supplies last
