Glimmerdark 2017

Glimmerdark is an unconventional Faerie Festival, one which welcomes EVERYONE from every world and genre! Rebel Faeries have left Fairyland and hired Jeff Mach Events to throw a hotel party unparalleled in all space and time!

What will you find? Well, when Faeries are loosed, they’re out to have a damn good time. So there’ll be amazing performers, music, storytelling, shows, our friendly Fae cast, workshops, games, panels, drinking, dancing, and vast amounts of revelry!
