Located amid the winding, wooded paths of Glen Lake Rotary Park in Bozeman, the 3rd Annual Fairy Village will contain all new fairy homes and business establishments created by talented Montana artists.


August 29 - September 18


Glen Lake Rotary Park


7 am - 10 pm




Starting on Monday, August 29th the 3rd annual fairy village will be visible to human eyes at Glen Lake Rotary Park.

Voted “Best Public Art Installation in Bozeman” in 2021, this year’s village will feature all new fairy homes and businesses made by Montana artists.

This is a self-guided experience offered for free by Random Acts of Silliness in partnership with the Bozeman Parks and Recreation Department & Gallatin Valley Land Trust, and with support from the Bozeman Health Foundation.

The installation will feature a “Build Your Own Bumblewood” area where inspired visitors can use natural materials to create their own fairy structures. New this year is a weekly fairy-themed story hour by local actors (visit the website for location and times).

Bumblewood Thicket is produced by Random Acts of Silliness in partnership with Gallatin Valley Land Trust and Bozeman Parks & Recreation, with generous support from Bozeman Health. Bumblewood Thicket is free, self guided, and open to all during park hours of 7am to 10pm.


From Manley Road, turn onto Bridger Vale Drive to access Glen Lake Rotary Park.  Park at the farthest end of the parking lot. Proceed North to trails (away from the lake) and follow the signs across the field. The village is about a 10 minute walk from the parking lot. 

There are no (human) bathrooms at the village, so be sure to tinkle now so you can twinkle later!
