August 4, 9-5; August 5, 10-4

Hartl Building, Red River Valley Fairgrounds, West Fargo, ND

Free parking, no admission charge!

Providing an event for gathering the fiber community, educating about the fiber arts, and a marketplace for all things fiber related.

 

Our new 2018 location in the Hartl Building at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds allows the whole event to take place inside, with air conditioning! We are also expanding the festival hours slightly to Saturday 9am-5pm, and Sunday 10am-4pm. Parking continues to be free and there will be no admission charge.

 

It’s road construction season, and here in the FM area it is in full swing.

Due to the sheer amount of road construction in the area, we recommend avoiding using 13th avenue, Veteran’s/9th Street, or Sheyenne Street in your route to the fair grounds. If you are using Interstate 94, we recommend taking exit 343 which will bring you to Main Avenue just west of the fair grounds. If you want to avoid the interstate, Main Avenue will be your best route west from town.

 

Take a look at our Festival Booklet and get a preview of the excitement we have in store for you! See the class descriptions, schedule, and vendors all in one easily saveable PDF. Printed booklets will be available at the Festival, but supplies may be limited.

 


T-shirts are in the works!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year’s Festival t-shirts are all hand-dyed in a variety of colorways to fit anyone’s style. Buy yours early so you get the best one!

And new this year we will also have totebags for sale and decorating!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get a bag, decorate it with the techniques you learn, and maybe a few purchases, and we’ll take a picture and put it in our gallery! Smaller bags that are easier for kids’ little hands will be available to purchase and decorate as well.
