The Fairbanks Fiber Festival is an annual public event that includes workshops, demos, and a vendor marketplace with local fiber artists and farmers with an emphasis on goods made or produced in Alaska.


The Fiber Festival features animal fibers such as wool, qiviut, alpaca, mohair and angora as well as other natural fibers like silk, cotton, bamboo, wood, cane, and also synthetic fibers. Goods for purchase include everything from raw animal fiber, yarns, baskets, quilts and sewn, woven, knitted and crocheted items to looms, spinning wheels, spindles, and other tools used to create fiber art.


The Festival offers opportunities for the public to explore the local fiber scene and try out new skills while giving fiber producers and artisans opportunities to network and strengthen statewide connections!
