The 20th annual Estes Park Wool Market will be held June 10-13, 2010. This fiber festival in the Rockies begins with two days of workshops on Thursday the 10th and Friday the 11th at Estes Park High School. You must pre-register for these workshops. The Wool Market continues at The Fairgrounds at Stanley Park with two exciting days of exhibits, demonstrations, competitions and vendor booths. The event is free and open to the public on Saturday, June 12th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, June 13th from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is a $5 parking fee.

Sheep dog herding demonstrations and sheep-shearing demonstrations are held four times a day throughout  the weekend.  An announcer will provide play-by-play explanations of the many herding and sheep-shearing techniques used by these animals and their handlers.

One of the most popular attractions is the Children's Tent, where visitors, young and old, are invited to try their hands at rope weaving, spinning and loom weaving. Weavers and spinners will be on hand to teach basics and give visitors a chance to try the techniques for themselves.

Sheep, llama, alpaca, cashmere & angora goat competitions, as well as fleece contests are held throughout the weekend.  For the shoppers, more than 50 vendor booths will be filled with fleeces, raw fibers, novelty knitting and crocheting yarns, as well as finished coats, scarves, hats, shawls, and fiber-processing equipment. 

The weekend's activities are held at The Fairgrounds at Stanley Park located at the intersection of U.S. Highway 36 and Community Drive. For more information, call the Events Department office at 970-586-6104, or email: events@estes.org.
