It’s officially May, and that means that it’s time for the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival! The festival is in it’s 13th year and is being held May 21-22 at Masterson Station Park in Lexington, Kentucky. There will be 50+ fiber vendors, delicious food vendors, amazing workshops, fleece and skein competitions, and hourly fiber demonstrations. You will not want to miss out on this year's festival. Workshop registration is only open until next week- so if you haven't already picked your next favorite hobby–now's the time to do so!
Our committee has been hard at work planning this year’s festival since last fall and we’re very excited for this year! Of course we couldn’t make this possible without our generous sponsors, including the KY Ag Tag Program led by Ag Commissioner Ryan Quarles, The Woolery, Community Ventures, and Ohio Valley Fiber Farm. We also wouldn’t have as organized of an event without our volunteers! Thank you to those who have already signed up. We could definitely use more help; please visit our website for volunteer opportunities at this year’s festival! Another way you can help is to give us a “like” on Facebook and Instagram and share our posts with your friends! The more views our pages get, the better!
We have many diverse workshops this year starting on Friday the 20th-Sunday the 22nd. Registration for our classes close May 13 so, don’t miss your opportunity to start a new hobby and learn from some amazing teachers!
Make sure to mark your calendars, grab a friend and head to Lexington May 21-22 and come enjoy the weekend with us!
