"Real magic and  genuine happiness"
Carol Guo - Specialty leasing and marketing manager

Fairy Finding is the brainchild of internationally acclaimed entertainer and artist Rupert Appleyard and has been creating magic since 2016

As well as performing as Fizzlewit, Rupert crafts each fairy diorama by hand, writes each riddle and edits every frame of video himself in order to make each Fairy Finding experience something truly special.

It takes a lot of imagination and hard work to bring the fairies of Fairy Finding to life, but when you see the wonder in the eyes of the children and families who discover them, it all makes sense.   

Clients include Edmonton Arts Council, Epcor, Glastonbury Festival for the Performing Arts, Northern Alberta International Children's Festival of the Arts, Millwoods Town Centre,  Edmonton International Street Performers Festival, Prairie Gardens and Adventure Farm, Central Alberta International Children's Festival of the Arts, AUPE and Snowking's Winter Festival.
