For years I’ve wanted to go to Fairyland. I often joke about how I need to borrow a kid so that I can go, since adults can’t go to Fairyland without being accompanied by a child. Every year there’s a night time gala for adults, but I’ve never been able to make it. Besides, it’s a bit pricey to get into the gala (it is Fairyland’s big fundraising event of the year). I’ve often wished that Fairyland would open at night for adults more often, and with an entrance price that everyone could pay.
Finally, Oaklandish has made my wish come true. This Friday they’re hosting Fairyland for Grownups:
During daylight hours, Fairyland is off-limits to grownups. Anyone who wants to enter the park has to arrive with a kid in tow. But not on Sept. 30th. For one night only, Oaklandish and Fairyland are teaming up to host a night of pure imagination, for adults only! Ever wanted to drink a beer on top of Rapunzel’s castle? This is your night.
For $10 in advance or $15 at the door, you can get your name on our Magical Will Call List, which will get you into a world of pure imagination, plus FREE drinks from Linden St. Brewery & Urban Legend Cellars, and tunes by DJ Dion Decibels. The Johnny Appleseed Cafe & FiveTen Burger will be selling the best kid-approved snacks in town, and the entire park will be open for exploring (no rides, though – rides and drinks just don’t mix). We’ll also have a raffle, games, and art projects to entertain you throughout the night.
We’re celebrating not only the magic of Fairyland, but the completion of Oaklandish’s final Ogilvy-inspired t-shirt design, which will be unveiled (in children’s sizes only) for the first time that night, along with the 3 other prior designs.
Sounds pretty awesome, right?
I really hope you’ll go – both because it will be tons of fun and because I hope it goes so well that Oaklandish and Fairyland will host a similar event again. Because sadly, I can’t go on Friday as my brother-in-law who lives in LA is performing in San Francisco that night, and I’m going to see him. So have fun for me and make sure it’s a huge success!
The event runs from 7pm to 10pm and all of the proceeds go to Fairyland. Advance ticket sales end today and you can purchase tickets online or at the Oaklandish store at 1444 Broadway.
