The gnomes are taking over Fayetteville this Gnomevember! Embark on a scavenger hunt to track down Fayetteville’s gnomes from Nov. 1-30. These magical beings will be hiding throughout town. Stop by the visitor center for your gnome tracking sheet and start your adventure to see how many you can find. Grab a mask and enjoy some social distancing fun around town. Turn in your tracking sheet at the visitor center for a small prize. Look at the gnomes closely. Throughout the month we will be hiding special gnomes with bonus prizes. Gnomes will sporadically have special instructions to award you with extra treats. These gnomes will be marked clearly and have a large note attached with instructions to claim prizes. We will hide one special gnome on November 30th. This gnome will come with instructions to claim the grand prize of Gnomevember.
Wild Art & Wonderful Things is also home to Fayetteville’s resident gnome, Walter of Wild & Woolly. Visitors are encouraged to stop by and grab a selfie with Walter, the giant gnome.
