Wool Market & Fiber Festival
June 10-11, 2017
Family events don't get much better than this - hands-on activities; fuzzy, approachable animals; entertaining performances; and shopping for mom and dad. Those familiar with the wool and fiber industry know this event, held at the Estes Park Events Complex, is the place to be. Families can enjoy tractor rides for kids, a silent auction in the llama tent, and an expanded vendor barn!
New this year! Check out the Knitting & Spinning Corner, as well as concessions and food trucks available to fight your hunger!
