I know I said I wouldn’t be doing any events but there will always be an exception for Fantasy Faire. I tried not to apply, told all my friends and family that I was sad about having to miss it, I’m just too busy with Seraphim and SOR but when the apps opened I filling it out. lol
Fantasy Faire is unlike any event in Second Life and there are so many reasons the event will always be the exception.
I blogged FF for the first time in 2013, it was right after my RL Dad had passed away from cancer, they welcomed me with open arms and never blinked that I was barely a blogger. Over the years I’ve gotten to know alot of the people involved with Fantasy Faire and they all work extremely hard to make this the best event of the year.
My friend, Bri, is designing a sim this year and I can’t wait to see what she comes up with. She is nervous, excited, scared, worrying about messing up, the usual fears when we do something new but I know her, I worked with her at MainstoreSL and Seraphim so I know how hard she works, the attention to detail she always does so I have no doubt she will come up with something beautiful. 🙂
I’m excited to be part of this important event once again. Cancer is a black cloud that hangs over too many people, it not only affects the person who is diagnosed with it but their families and friends. For all of them, we have to get better treatments and a CURE!
Thank you Fantasy Faire for once again allowing me to be part of this amazing event. ❤

Fantasy Faire 2020: Building a World Without Cancer
Celebrating its twelfth year, Fantasy Faire 2020 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, role-players and performers in the virtual world. From Thursday, April 23 to Sunday May 10, treat yourself to shopping, dance and theater performances, DJ parties, auctions, questing, our Literary Festival, fantasy art, events and role-playing 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.
Our formal programming will conclude with our One Team dance party marathon on Tuesday, May 5th, but now we invite you to join us for an additional week of shopping, questing, and exploring as the Fairelands will be open through Sunday, May 10th. That’s a total of eighteen days of the Faire – and you never know when something unexpected might happen in that final week!
As always, you’ll find fantasy avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets and exclusive items available from almost 200 of Second Life’s top Fantasy Creators across thirteen stunning regions designed by some of the visionary artists behind many of the hottest spots on the Second Life destination guide.
In addition to the thirteen shopping regions there will also be four Faireland realms that take us beyond commerce, from a Memorial Garden to the Fairelands Quest, the Literary Festival, Performance Stages, from Art Galleries to the Worldling Collection. These bring the Fairelands count for 2020 to seventeen regions, just waiting for you to explore them.
Fantasy Faire 2020 will be open to the public April 23 – May 10. The SLurl to the event will, as always, be found on the website on our opening day. We welcome you to come and join the story.
Fantasy Faire 2020 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:
