If you would like to present a workshop yourself, suggest a topic for a workshop, or recommend someone to give a workshop, please contact the Program Director at programs@fantasiafair.org.

The bible of the Fair is the 'Daily Schedule', which lists all the activities, their locations, who is doing them and when. In the months leading up to the start of each Fair, this schedule is updated periodically so please check back periodically to get the latest. Also, you can download a printable version of this schedule in PDF format.

For detailed descriptions of each workshop, please refer to the Workshop Descriptions page or download the Participants' Guide, when it becomes available in September.
