Festival Location

Big Sky Fiber Festival takes place in the big town of Hamilton (www.cityofhamilton.net), about 30 miles south of Missoula, MT. The County Fairgrounds has a new Convention Center building that is perfect for vendors, demos and hanging out. And of course, the fairgrounds has the animal facilities we need to acknowledge our friends who actually grow all this great fiber for us.

Hamilton is nestled in the Southern part of the Valley and is spectacular in June with the green hills and pastures topped by snow-capped peaks. Check the links on the left as they become active for places to stay, and other activities. If you are a hard-core fiber nut, you could visit us, then motor leisurely to Black Sheep Gathering.
