FIBER ART EXHIBITION

The Salida Fiber Festival is proud to present the annual Fiber Art Exhibition, which will open the Friday of the festival at the SteamPlant Paquette Gallery, and will remain on display through the remainder of the month.

This exhibition is open to all vendors and fiber artists residing within 50 miles of Salida. Entries must be of original design using any fiber art and for sale. If last year’s exhibition was any indicator, this year’s will be spectacular!

POP-UP FASHION SHOW

For the second year, the Salida Fiber Festival will mount a pop-up
fashion show during the festival.  On Saturday at 10:30am and 1:30pm,
and on Sunday at 11am, our models will walk through the festival grounds, displaying wearables from one of our wonderful vendors, giving festival visitors an opportunity to see the items on the human form and to learn more about them.  Keep an eye out for our models
during the festival to see (and buy!) the lovely wearables produced by
our vendors!


FIBER MOVIE AT THE STEAMPLANT

Each year a film is screened after the Fiber Art Exhibition. Before the screening of the film awards will be given to artists in the exhibition and details discussed about the following two days of the Salida Fiber Festival.
