The Salida Fiber Festival, started in 2012 and conducted entirely by volunteers, has become one of the premier events in Central Colorado and one of the most diverse and well-attended fiber festivals in the West.
The Salida Fiber Festival is held the first Friday from 9-5 and Saturday from 10-4 after Labor Day.
Featuring vendors focused on all aspects of textiles, including fiber-related activities and demonstrations, a make-and-take activity tent, a silent auction tent featuring a variety of goods donated by vendors and Salida businesses, and a tree-shaded beer garden offering local beer, wine, and distilled drinks.
Every year the activity tent hosts demos, youth activities, and a variety of festival related off-site surprises such as the annual Fiber Arts Exhibition, a fiber related film, and many galleries and businesses host fiber inspired events. Check in at the info booth for a program.
