The Fort Garland Museum & Cultural Center hosts its third annual fiber festival—a celebration of all things fiber and every step of the creative process, from sheep to shawl. You'll find educational demonstrations and a fiber arts marketplace, along with live music, food, and activities for the entire family.
The San Luis Valley has a long and storied history of fiber arts. Many of the earliest settlers to the valley and the surrounding region were shepherds, and both sheep and goats remain a vital part of the area’s culture, heritage, and economy. The From Land to Hand festival continues this tradition, celebrating the historical arts of fiber crafting—spinning, dyeing, weaving, and knitting—while providing an opportunity for regional artisans and merchants to gather, share their skills and display their work.
