Fairs & Festivals







2017 Festivals & Events

 Some of these are gatherings of fiber animal raisers, fiber enthusiasts

spinners, weavers, rug hookers, knitters, & fiber artists. 

Others are traditional Maine fairs, many of which have a growing fiber presence in the exhibition halls, animals exhibited,

and demonstrations.

There are vendors selling items from stock handling equipment  to fine

                         lace shawls and demonstrations from herding dogs to rug hooking. 

        We are dedicated to introducing & educating the public and potential farmers to the

wonders of goats as livestock, pets, and providers of fiber, meat, and milk products.
