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


The 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!



Due to COVID-19, this year's Fiber Festival will take place online in order to protect the health and wellness of the Fairbanks Community. We know how important social connections are as we all weather this pandemic and we hope you'll participate in our array online features and virtual opportunities throughout the month of November!
