The Blue Ridge Fiber Fest is a young festival now going into it’s third year
We have learned much over the past two shows, and each one gets better
In 2018, our first year, we attracted about 1,500 people. The weather was beautiful.
In 2019, we had about 1,500 people again, but the weather was frightful.. it rained all weekend!
This goes to show you that the serious fiber enthusiast is never deterred.
In 2020 we are expecting to double our attendance
Vendors are juried for this event. We seek to showcase the farmer and the fiber artist.
If you would like to apply to be a vendor and are seeking a space other than “bring your own tent” please inquire by email prior to sending your vendor fee as to availability of your desired space. All of the inside vending spots are spoken for, and we do not anticipate many community tent spaces to be available.
We will accept a small number of food truck applications, the deadline is April 15, 2020.
Non-profits that support the fiber arts are welcome to bring their own tent (no retail sales) for no charge, just send us the application so we know to make a space for you. Fiber guilds from around the region are also welcome.
