Soon, Fantasy Faire (FF), one of the greatest events in Second Life, arises once more.
For the past three years, I have had the honor and privilege to serve as one among a group of sponsors for the glorious Fantasy Faire Radio, without which the FF just wouldn’t be the same. (I know I’m far from alone in that view.) Since the event’s beginnings, I have also had the honor and privilege to serve as an official blogger for this vitally important and outrageously fun and wonderful event. (Sadly I deleted my photos from 2008 because Flickr caps the number of photos for non-pro users and I didn’t go pro until sometime after the faire. I really wish I had them still. It would be great fun to see how things changed over the years, including my abilities, such as they may be, with the camera!)
Even into the 15th year of this event, I still wouldn’t miss Fantasy Faire for the world. Every year, Fantasy Faire is new and uplifting and consistently foundational, both at the same time. There’s so much to see and do and so many opportunities to make a genuine impact while having a blast. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee or tea or such, stream Fantasy Faire Radio, …

Fantasy Faire 2023: Building a World Without Cancer
Celebrating its fifteenth year, Fantasy Faire 2023 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. From Thursday, April 20 to Sunday May 7, treat yourself to shopping, dance and theater performances, DJ parties, auctions, questing, our Literary Festival, fantasy art, events and roleplaying as thousands of Second Life residents and creators bring their own visions together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.
This year our enchanted goblet overfloweth with events and activities galore. We can no longer contain the Faire programming schedule to a mere ten days, so we announce, with much excitement, that formal programming will be extended for the entire run of the Faire! The magic of fifteen years and hundreds of thousands of Fairelanders have accumulated to bring us 18 full days, and nights, of fabulous Faire fun. Experience all the Fairelands have to offer over three glorious weeks!
As always, you’ll find fantasy avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets and exclusive items available from over 350 of Second Life’s top Fantasy Creators across 22 stunning regions designed by the visionary artists behind many of the most adored spots on the Second Life destination guide.
In addition to the sixteen shopping regions there will also be Faireland realms that take us beyond commerce and give us places to celebrate together as a community. Party with fairies, demons and tinies at the Fairechylde. Adventure with the Bard Queen as you complete the Fairelands Quest. Explore the Fairelands on the Litfest Tours. Immerse yourself in a world of stories with the Litfest, Roleplay and Performance events. Remember loved ones with the Memorial Garden and embrace new dreams with the Worldling Cradle.
Fantasy Faire 2023 will be open to the public April 20 – May 7. The SLurl to the event will be found on the website on our opening day. We welcome you to come and join the story.
Fantasy Faire 2023 is made possible by the generous support of our Region and Event Sponsors, all of whom you can learn more about on the Faire’s website. For more information please contact one of the Faire coordinators:
