AS the main organiser of today's Day of Fae and tonight's Azure Starlit Faerie Ball in Grafton, Kellie Boulton wasn't expecting to get much sleep this weekend, when The Daily Examiner caught up with her last night.

"It's going to be full-on in the kitchen tomorrow but The Barn is starting to look really, really nice," Ms Boulton said.

Ruing some clashes with weddings and other events today, Kellie said it was important that these inaugural "fae" events made an impact on the area.

"Realistically we haven't covered costs, but I didn't expect that in the first year," she said.

While tickets for the meal portion of tonight's ball are unavailable due to catering and time limitations, Kellie said she would allow entry to the later entertainment (after 8.30pm) for $15.

But there's plenty of free attractions on offer today at the Grafton Showground with markets, workshops, a fae procession (noon) and musicians from 1am to 1.15pm.

Also, tarot reader Lyn Ruby has contacted Kellie with a cosmic offer of sorts.

"She told me that lots of good things had happened to her and that she was going to offer her tarot readings for free," Kellie said.

"I'm trying to bring the faerie to Grafton so people don't have to travel to Byron Bay or elsewhere, so I would love as many people to come along as possible."
