The 11th annual Kings County Fiber Festival celebrates everything handmade in fiber arts. If you knit, spin, crochet, weave, sew, felt, or dye this festival is perfect for you!
Come support independent makers who will be vending yarns and notions to inspire your next project along with finished products ideal for gifting. Visit the Festival website here for more info on participating vendors. Vendors will be set up outdoors around the Park.
During the Festival, we will also be running the annual Hat Drive to collect warm winter hats for our unhoused neighbors. Handmade or store bought hats are welcome, please bring each hat in an individual zip lock bag to the Hat Drive tent in front of OSH. Please do not donate other types of clothing.
