This year's Festival has been Canceled

The dreadful decision to cancel our Festival is upon us.  I am extremely appreciative of our board’s wisdom and decision not to rush to a decision and wait until today to make the final call.  During this Covid-19 pandemic, our first priority is the health and safety of everyone involved in the Festival – our patrons, vendors, instructors and demonstrators.  Our 23rd get-together will have to wait until Mother’s Day, May 8 & 9th, 2021.

This Festival has become an amazing, annual family reunion!  The build-up of energy and anticipation from all involved bring such joy to our collective love for the fiber arts and wool producing life-style.  I hope all of you will continue to support each other over the next year.  The 2020 vendors, demonstrators and teachers are posted on our website.  Please reach out and make a direct connection to support these amazing small business entrepreneurs.

Fleece, Fiber and Family

The fairgrounds are filled with music, food, artisans and animals.

Events include Minnesota’s largest fleece competition, sheep shearing, fleece skirting demos, local guilds and more.

Families always enjoy the sheep and goats in the barn and this year there will be a new Farm Work Stock Dog Trial!

There’s a lot of room to picnic–weather permitting! Bring your spinning wheel, your friends, and spin the day away.
