The Grazing Hills Fiber Festival is offering a sponsorship program to assist in the public promotion and education about the fiber arts. As another form of advertising, your sponsorship can promote your business to our many festival attendees and provide great web and community exposure!
The idea behind the Grazing Hills Fiber Festival began in 2018, when Katie DeWinkle of Grazing Hills Alpacas, and her friend, Christine Nauman of Wooly Pines Farm in Moscow realized what our area needed for Fiber Producers. It took shape and was launched in July 2019 and again in July 2020, even during the COVID madness!
We are now hosting this event for yet the 3rd time. In 2020, we were able to still have this event, with lots of safety precautions in place. We still had over 1000 attendees, 34 vendors, 14 workshops, 5 local bands, and 2 food trucks.
We strive to continue the event each July and build upon our mistakes and successes. We have been blessed with wonderful vendors, talented artists and teachers, and a great turnout of attendees the past 2 years. We hope to continue that and have another successful Festival this July.
A family owned and operated alpaca farm located in Viola, Idaho, Grazing Hills is settled in the rolling hills of the Palouse. Katie DeWinkle, her entourage of 6 daughters and her easy-going husband, Cory, manage and run their farm, the Country Store and their B&B. They currently raise over 50 huacaya alpacas, sheep, ducks, chickens, cows, and a few horses. Grazing Hills Alpacas began in 1993, when Katie was just 6. She helped train, show, and run the farm in the middle of being a homeschooler entrepreneur.
Now, as a 3rd generation alpaca farmer and owner, Katie is passionate about raising awareness to the fiber arts, and the endless possibilities of the fiber industry. Not just as it relates to alpacas.... but how important it is to train up the next generation of fiber producers.
Located on the hilltop, the Festival is spread out over several acres on the Alpaca Ranch. There is a stage area for the local performers, tents set up for classes, food trucks throughout, and scavenger hunts for the kids. Parking is easy, but, some walking is required.
Your financial support of the GHFF directly helps to promote fiber-related activities, fiber education, small fiber farms, and small businesses throughout the Inland Northwest. Individual, business, guild, and other group sponsors are welcomed. We believe this event is crucial to keeping the art of fiber arts alive in our neck of
A monetary gift will ensure that your support will be advertised to hundreds of website & event visitors.
