Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk
Saturday & Sunday, May 4 and 5
10 am—3pm | RAIN OR SHINE
The Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk is one of the most whimsical events in the state. This is an enchanting opportunity to explore an (almost) real fairy garden.

Please join us for at our fifth annual Fairy Gnome Discovery Walk, a whimsical afternoon here at Salisbury’s own Historic, Pettengill Farm (circa 1792) and take a walk through our lush gardens, enchanted forest, and our serene marsh; it’s an event like no other.

The gems of the event are the nearly 200 Fairy and Gnome Homes, peppered throughout a one mile wooded path that leads to the salt marsh and back. Homes are created by very talented professionals, families, school children, and local businesses.

It's true, we have awesome FREE crafts and activities. We have all day live music, improv theater performances, and other entertainment. Yes, and we also have fun places to shop and souvenirs priced to please.

We are so filled with excitement and anticipation to take in this years meticulously created Fairy and Gnome homes, peppered throughout the most magical woods with a treat half way that will take your breath away, that only our beautiful seaside town could offer. Oh and of course, yummy food trucks. But what you can't see, is what we are most proud of. The magic that is ignited within the youngest to the oldest. Kids crouching in the woods discovering Fairy and Gnome homes - you'll hear the squeals and see the sparkle in their eyes when they think they have spotted one. It's the folks dancing to their favorite tunes in a sea of bubbles, or enjoying the quietness of the farm while watching the stillness of the pond. Not a care in the world or an ear for the "static" that exists outside of this magical event.

Tickets are on sale now and we offer FREE admission to home creators.
We hope you join us!

A Guilded Holiday in Newport, RI — A Groups Inc. One Day Bus Tour

Saturday, December 14, 2019
Probably the most popular Christmas destination, via motorcoach, is Newport, Rhode Island. There’s something so exciting about touring the luxuriously decorated summer cottages of the Vanderbilt’s and other Guilded Age industrialists from the turn of the century.

We’ll depart from Pettengill Farm (or Crossroads Plaza in Salisbury depending on the weather) at 8:00 a.m. and head for Bristol, RI to Blithewold Mansion, located right on Narragansett Bay. When Mr. VanWickle designed and built Blithewold, he wanted to focus on family, gardens and trees. While we won’t be seeing the gardens in their splendor on this tour, you can see out over the property—literally the hundreds of trees from all over the world that comprise the arboretum.

On arrival at Blithewold, we will have a guided tour of the mansion by their professional docents. The Christmas decorations are simply gorgeous and every nook and cranny of the home is dressed to impress—the main feature is the 22 foot Christmas tree right in the atrium. It’s fantastic.

At 12 noon, we will be having our luncheon like the VanWickle family would have back in the Guilded Age—in the elegantly decorated dining room. You will feast on a delicious full course meal with your choice of entree: Lasagna Bolognese, Marinated Herb Chicken or Pan Seared Halibut. Please make your selection on the reservation form.

Since the gardeners who lovingly tend the gardens at Blithewold aren’t working in December, we have asked several of the gardeners to talk about how the gardens were originally designed and to field questions you may have. The museum shop at Blithewold is a gem and we will have time for you to browse in case you may want to purchase a last-minute Christmas gift.

We’ll depart Blithewold by 2:00 p.m. and head to Newport for our group reservation at the spectacular 70 room, Italian Renaissance style home of Cornelius Vanderbilt II—the Breakers Mansion on Ochre Point Avenue.

24 decorated Christmas trees grace the Breakers—including a 20-foot-high tree made up entirely of poinsettias! Each participant will use the wonderful Whisper Sets that are distributed to everyone who wishes since there are no guided tours on the weekends. So we invite you to gather your friends and come along and celebrate the holidays with Pettengill Farm—it’s going to be a wonderful day.
