Create a Marin Family Tradition at Pixie Park's Spring Fair

April 10, 2016

Pixie Park

Spring has sprung at the Marin Art and Garden Center and Pixie Park’s Spring Fair is about to bloom! In fact the Fair has blossomed at MAGC each year for the last 58 years making its occurrence almost a rite of spring. While many generations of Marinites have enjoyed the Spring Fair, you don’t have to be from Marin to soak in its nostalgia. Kids of all ages are welcome to step back in time and explore the Fair’s Candy Land, Autopia, and Tot Town. The fair also offers families rides on an old-time train, storytelling performances, and a petting farm. Admission is free so there is really no reason not to make Pixie Park’s Spring Fair a new family tradition.

The Pixie Park Spring Fair takes place Sunday, May 15, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Marin Art and Garden Center, located at 30 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in Ross. Admission is free; games, rides, and food require paid tickets. There's a $10 fee for parking at the Marin Art and Garden Center. Parking spots are limited; carpooling, walking, and biking are encouraged. Proceeds from the fair support Pixie Park member parties (like Halloween) and park maintenance as well as the Marin Art and Garden Center.

Located on the beautiful grounds of the Marin Art and Garden Center, Pixie Park is a co-op playground for children under age six. Pixie Park has been Marin’s playground for over 60 years and is one of the only gated play parks in Marin County. This means entering and exiting the park requires a special Pixie Park key. The key ensures children will not be able to leave the park without their adult’s knowledge. At Pixie Park, parents, grandparents, and caregivers can relax knowing their kids are in a safe and beautiful environment and kids have the freedom to independently explore.
