Michigan Fiber Festival, one of the Midwest's Largest Annual Fiber Festivals!
Now in it's 16th year, we are excited to say that "time flies when you are having fun!" 2013 brings new and exciting changes to the Festival - for starters, you will notice you are now navigating around on our new full eCommerce website! You can now register for the Festival, Workshops, and Camping online! You can even log-in as a Member (versus checking out as a 'Guest') and be able to sign-in each year or during annual events and we will always have your information on hand! You will also notice this year will bring new emails with your registration providing you with new electronic grounds maps and much more!
As we continue to grow, we hope you will notice that our Festival will never lose that special 'down home feel.' Each year we look forward to seeing new faces, seeing everyone enjoying themselves, learning something new, or just having fun eating Festival food and dancing to the live bands!
As always, join us for Fiber Demonstrations, Shopping, Fiber Workshops, Tractor Shows/Displays, Animal Competitions, Kids Parades, and so much more! Remember, this is a great Fiber Festival that provides fun for the whole family - so we hope to see you this year!

Old Tractors R Us Tractor Club Display
Ladies, have you come to Festival dragging a reluctant husband along with you? Men, have you come to Festival being dragged through miles of yarn and roving? Do not grumble any more because there is a tractor display that would like your attention. This year will be the 5th year that Old Tractors R-Us Tractor Club (a local tractor group) will be at Festival with a variety of tractors and activities on display for all to enjoy. Also, this year the tractors will be on display for both Saturday and Sunday! They are looking forward to meeting and greeting the many people that will attend Festival this year.
