The fairy festival 2019 was the biggest event we had compared to other years. Thousands of locals and tourists came from all over Cyprus with their families and friends. The park, tea room and shop were all decorated with flowers, fairies, gnomes, knights and butterflies! After the heavy rain fall from the long winter in Cyprus, the trees and herbs sunbathed in the spring’s warm sun and dressed themselves in forest green and flowers. The divine smells of pine, rosemary and bay laurel set the atmosphere just right to celebrate fantastic moments of joy and laughter.

For each Fairy Festival at Cyherbia, we use our imagination, inspiration and childhood memories to create this festival together. As we all come from different countries in the world, we find inspiration from our individuality. This way, we have diverse activities for all ages inspired by elements from different fairy tales and fantasy games for you to enjoy.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.” – Albert Einstein.

At Cyherbia, we love giving visitors opportunities to expand their imagination, their minds and their hearts. We believe that, by creating a magical world in nature and becoming a part of it, it will stimulate your dreams, desires and imagination. Children and adults alike can feel like they are a part of not only nature, but the world of imagination and endless possibilities. The decorated park, the fragrant smells of the trees and herbs, the fantasy characters around you, will make you feel like a child again! Every staff member you interact with, plays the role of a fantasy character. Anywhere you walk, you will discover something new and exciting. And every year, the fairy festival is different from the previous one. We change it every time, so as to give you a fresh, new experience to look forward to. This is why, locals and tourists love to come again and again!

We would love to hear your feedback about our Fairy Festival 2019!
