Festival Location -- ON-LINE
Michigan Fiber Festival is held in Allegan, Michigan at the Allegan County Fairgrounds. To learn more about the fairgrounds, visit them online at http://www.allegancountyfair.com/
2020 officially marks our 25th anniversary.
We love to gain your input, so please do not hesitate to reach out to us with any ideas that you would like to see incorporated!
We are always looking for volunteers to assist committees or to serve as a chair person. Bringing Festival to fruition takes a full year of planning, so there is work to do year round. If you are interested in helping, please contact the office via e-mail: staff@michiganfiberfestival.
While we continue to grow, we hope that our Festival will never lose that special 'down-home feel.' It is gratifying to see new and returning fiber friends as they enjoy the music, competitions, and shows; visit the animals; learn something new; peruse the old tractors; visit the historic village; or, just plain relax with a project on the beautiful Allegan Country Fairgrounds.
Remember, this is a great Fiber Festival that provides fun for the whole family - we hope to see you in 2020!
Rain or Shine, Hot or Cold, Windy or Calm, Together or Apart Michigan Fiber Festival will still go on.
