    The Great NY Faerie Fest A Midsummer's Dream

    Hey all, Rusalka here!

    This weekend is the NY Faerie Fest, and they have a small lagoon for mermaids. I'm planning on being there Sunday. I still cant decide between my three tails which to finish and take with me. Is anyone else planning on going?

    I've never heard of it. Is it upstate?

    Depends on your definition of upstate! Its in Ouaquaga, NY

    "Harpursville (Exit 6 on I-88 - to 79 "East"). Don't blink or you'll miss it!
    The site is about 3 1/2 hours from NYC or Philadelphia, 2 1/2 hours from Albany, 1 1/2 hours from Syracuse or Scranton, and 4 hours from Buffalo."

    Darn, no idea where that is lol. I'm in Poughkeepsie so anything north of Kingston is upstate to me

    I live in actual upstate so I always have to check! From the map, it looks a little off to the right of Binghamton.

    Fun Fact: This event is a bust and not open to recreational mermaids. I found out by accident that it was for contracted performers only

    I forgot to look here for the NY Faerie Festival. I posted about it on Faenetwork. I went on Saturday and took my tail. I also didn't know they had an actual mermaid show. I thought people were just meeting up to do photos. They had fabric tails but no monofins so kids stayed near the shore away from the mermaids. You could take photos of the mers but kids couldn't get a photo next to them. It was a nice little set up though. They let me take some photos in my tail in between their shows but probably just because I was the first to ask at that point. It was disappointing that I couldn't do more photos since it was in and out and it was kinda annoying to be told no you can't be a mermaid at a festival full of people dressed as fairies, trolls,fauns, ect. What happened that for you to accidentally find out?

    I went today, was not impressed. The mermaids didn't interact with anyone really. I was ignored when trying to talk to the mermaids until I set a foot in the creek and was promptly yelled at
