ABOUT ELFIA ARCEN
Elfia is a festival that is focused on the expression of dreams.  Costumes are the most obvious way to shape these dreams. But they also go further than only costumes: music, photography, body art, body painting, vehicles… They are all opportunities to make those dreams reality.

In 2014 the themes of Elfia will circle around one of the biggest mythical figures in Western European legends: King Arthur. This myth is probably based on a real person that brought temporary peace to England after the Romans left the isle around the year 500 AC. In the second millennium Arthur grew out to almost messianic proportions. In September the event will focus more on the darker and more mysterious elements of the King Arthur stories: his relationship to witchcraft and magic. Or to personalise it more: to Merlin and Morgana.

With parades, processions and interactive performances throughout the day, opportunities abound to share in the pomp and pageantry of A Midsummer’s Dream Faerie Festival. From face-painted fairy princesses to wildly costumed characters of fantasy fiction, artful presentation abounds!

There will be a fashion show of woodland wearables featuring ensemble work from some of our festival clothing merchants. Guests too, who come garbed and glamoured may show off their look on the Faerie Fashion Runway… World-class face & body painters and maskmakers can work their wonders to perfectly complement your otherworldly ensemble.

A proud feature of our festival is a JURIED EXHIBITION AND SALE of handmade North American artwork and fine crafts. About thirty exhibitors will have been carefully selected for originality and craftsmanship in a balanced variety of media. We enthusiastically encourage you to support American artists and craftspeople.
