Summer Magic: Urban Fairies Take Over Danforth

The first time we heard that there were going to be fairy doors showing up along the Danforth, we were a little bit skeptical. After all, we know that fairies don't really like hot weather (thanks to Junior Pioneer #1 for confirming this is true) so we wondered what on earth they were doing on our little strip of Danforth. However, we realized that the Danny's Urban Fairies are really and truly a kindred spirit to our Pioneer-ing nature. They are the new generation of fairies, not afraid of people (kind of like Tink in her most recent appearance in Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue) and curious about the world. They've picked the most family-friendly strip in Toronto to spend their summer, and a whole bunch of Danforth businesses are welcoming them to their premises.

The catch is that you have to believe in fairies to see the doors, as they only appear to those that want to see them. Kind of like this sudden surprise at Serendipity Bakery......

As a celebration of this magical summer filled with pixie dust, they have agreed to appear at various surprise events along the Danforth (with their local host & interpreter Natalie Coulter) so don't miss all the fun. It starts today (July 15) at the Danny Loves Music at East Lynn Park from 6-9 with glitter tattoos for the little ones and some tips for the adults on where exactly to find these homegrown creations. And feel free to post your own fairy discoveries to the Danny's Urban Fairies page - you never know when one will pop up. Faith, trust & a little bit of pixie dust!

These fairies at The Borough are very serious about their parliamentary duties, obviously.

  1. Thanks for the post. We are so excited that the neighbourhood is embracing being summer hosts of 50+ fairies. I have seen all of the doors and they are incredible, and I think just yesterday I caught site of a fairy wing in the Coxwell parkette as made her way to Len.
