Since 2021

The Second Saturday in May


Black Fae


Founded by Jasmine La Fleur, Black Fae Day is a online and in person celebration and an organization committed to the expansion of High Fantasy through uplifting the artistry, voices, stories, and communal experiences of Black people.

Our story

In March of 2021, Jasmine tweeted her wish to see Black people viewed in a positive light as fantasy characters on May 8th, 2021. On the day of the event, it became the second most trending topic of the day on Twitter and the movement’s hashtag, #blackfaeday, had reached millions of views between TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook in a single weekend. Jasmine created and registered Black Fae Day LLC as a business in the state of Oklahoma in June 2021. Black Fae Day LLC, as a business, provides events, online initiatives, and other creative means to increase positive representation of Black people in fantasy and mainstream media.

Our mission & vision

Black Fae Day is dedicated to promoting the representation of Black People in high fantasy across various media.

Black Fae Day Holiday

The Black Fae Day annual holiday is celebrated on the second Saturday of May each year, since 2021. This years date is May 11, 2024!

The purpose of this day is to increase positive representation of Black People in fantasy. As the creator and one of the many custodians of the celebration, it is my hope that our community continues to celebrate with ease and creative freedom.

The Faemily Reunion

The Faemily Reunion theme hopes to rekindle the first year’s feeling of community, creativity, and familial bonds. It is also intended to branch followers with other creatives in the Black Fae Community as well as the greater fantasy community as a whole.

Global Celebration

It's time to get the Fae family together! This year, we want to highlight as many events and entertainers as possible! Tell us about how you intend to celebrate Black Fae Day this year in detail. We are looking to work with event organizers, creators, and influencers to help make sure the holiday fun is accessible to as many faebies as possible.
