Red River Exhibition Place, 3977 Portage Avenue, Winnipeg

The Manitoba Fibre Festival is a unique event connecting local fibre farmers with the crafting community.  Discover sheep and alpaca fleece straight from the shepherd, hand-spun and hand-dyed yarns, and beautiful finished pieces made by talented artisans and much more in the vendor market.

The Fibre Festival is a family friendly event, offering demonstrations of many crafts from ancient lace-making techniques to machine knitting and sheep shearing; a curated fibre art show, and a wonderful market. Meet the sheep and alpacas face to face in the Hall of Breeds display! 

The Manitoba Fibre Festival is a welcome opportunity for urban and rural Manitobans to come together in a relaxed creative atmosphere, to learn new skills, and to celebrate local fibre farmers and fibre artists.
