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. Admission is free.
The Wool Market takes place at the Estes Fairgrounds and Event Center. See sheep, alpacas, llamas, rabbits, goats and other fiber animals. As usual there is the ever-popular vendor barn, the animal tents, demonstrations including sheep to shawl, a children’s tent, sheep shearing, herding dogs and more.
41 workshops spanning various fiber arts including spinning, weaving, knitting, natural dyes, twining and more will be offered at the 2018 Estes Park Wool Market and Fiber Festival.
In addition to the fun activities, the professionals who participate in the Wool Market show and sell their incredible goods. Showing hand-spun yarns and threads to finished hats, gloves and bags, the skilled artisans display an amazing selection of unique materials and products. Inspired by what you've seen?
