Find Your Wings Week- April 14-18
Fairies will fill the Botanical Gardens during a new celebration of all things winged at Find Your Wings Week at the Botanical Gardens.

To expand on the fairy fun, the annual Fairy Festival is also planned for April 17-18 during the day.
During Find Your Wings Week, visitors will enjoy the Spring Flower Exhibit, sponsored by M&T Bank. The exhibit will be decorated with some imaginative fairy surprises and will be open daily from 10:00am to 4:00pm. With sights and fragrant smells of vibrant spring flowers, the Botanical Gardens will be filled with lively pops of color that visitors won’t want to miss. A delightful fairy village and model train will highlight this whimsical week in honor of our pollinator friends. In an effort to protect pollinators, the Erie County Environmental Management Council will provide information on their Safe Home for The Gnomes campaign. The campaign encourages residents to have a pesticide-free lawn creating a safe home for the Gnomes and their busy pollinator friends.
Gardens After Dark: Fantastic Fairies will create a magical and whimsical garden full of winged creatures. Visitors are encouraged to wear their favorite fairy costume to fully indulge in the tropical fairy garden as lights dance and bounce off the glass windows and shadows are created by the amazing plant collection that will transport you to another world full of fantastic fairies. Delight in the Spring Flower Exhibit, a fairy village display, a model train and more.
