BLACK FAE DAY

A Non-Profit collaboration

What is Black fae day?

Black Fae Day is a celebration merging fantasy and cultural pride, where individuals with African or Black heritage embrace fantastical realms.

Taking place on the second weekend of May, participants express themselves through imaginative fae creature costumes, intertwining mythology, folklore, and African diasporic traditions. This movement promotes representation in the fantasy genre, offering a space for diverse narratives and empowering individuals to celebrate their cultural roots in a magical context.
