2016 Salida Fiber Festival

Silent Auction

Three times during the weekend, we hold a silent auction of donations from vendors and Chaffee County businesses, which helps fund the following year's festival. In addition to an amazing array of yarns, fibers, fiber tools, and knitted and crocheted items, this year's Saturday morning Silent Auction will feature a "Shop Salida" section, including a number of gift certificates and items donated by local businesses. Stop by, place a bid, and help support not only next year's festival, but also our business community.

Activity Tent

Not just for children, the Activity Tent gives festival visitors the chance to try three easy fiber activities, and take home the product of their efforts.  Volunteers will be showing kids of all ages how to make yarn ropes, yarn pom-pons, and medicine-bottle beads.  Come in and get creative!

Beer Garden

In the shade of 100-year-old trees, the Beer Garden is a great place to stop for a moment, relax, show off your purchases and try a local libation.  We feature beers from Amica's Microbrewery, wines from Vino Salida winery, and a gin punch from Wood's Distillery, any one of which is perfect for a Salida September day.

Take a look at the Beer Garden Menu!
