The Fiber Festival is Held Rain or Shine!

We have many planned activities and will hold our festival regardless of the weather conditions, well maybe not if we have a hurricane, so be sure to come dressed appropriately. Additionally, there is limited seating available so feel free to bring your own lawn chairs or blankets to recline on as you watch our dog trials!
