Pixie Woods began as a dream and became a reality in 1954 through the generosity of many local businesses, organizations, and individuals.  Over one million visitors from all 50 states and other countries have journeyed through its rainbow gates.  Pixie Woods was created and is sustained by generous community donations. 


Special thanks to Pacific Gas and Electric Company for its generous contribution towards maintenance and repairs for the 2014 season!
