River Yarn Fibre Festival

Sat 6 April - Sun 7 April

River Yarn Fibre Festival – 6 & 7 April 2024 – 10am to 4pm, Carcoar, NSW

The picture-perfect village of Carcoar is nestled in a small sheltered valley beside the meandering Belubula River. A true historic gem, it is the third oldest settlement west of the Blue Mountains.

We are inviting you to join us at the second Fibre Festival – a weekend of inspiring workshops and market stalls for knitting and yarn enthusiasts.

Carcoar is praised as a wonderful piece of living history and a brilliant place to recharge the batteries, step back to yesteryear and immerse in local hospitality.
