High Fiber Festival Time is Here

A fiber festival is coming to Hickory Neck Episcopal Church in Toano on Saturday, May 18, 2019, from 10 am-3 pm. The HNC High Fiber Festival will celebrate and share the appreciation of the natural fibers of plants and animals. The festival will feature the potential of farmers, fiber related agribusiness and artisans of our community and surrounding regions.

Wondering what it is all about? Come and feel the love of a quasi-country faire- just imagine being greeted by the smell of apple cider donuts cooking, hearing the bleating of little lambs and llamas, feel the soft fur of fabulous bunnies whose proud owners pluck it and spin it before your eyes. Enjoy artisans who will no doubt delight you with their expertise and answer all of your questions! See the colorful tents filled with impressive works of fiber from vendors nearby and across three states! Participate in all these activities and more in the glory of the sunshine or shade under the trees. There are even food trucks available to tickle your taste buds!

The fiber festival will have a special tent with games and craft activities just for children and many items will be for sale from dyed yarn to clothing and jewelry- all made from fibers of plants or animals. Lunch and sweet treats are available from street vendors. Check out the website www.highfiberfestival.com for a past look at the High Fiber festival of 2017. Come out and enjoy this year's Fiber Festival.

Admission is free, however there is a small charge for parking of $5.00. The proceeds of the fair will help provide support to the many outreach programs at HNC. Hickory Neck Episcopal Church is located at 8300 Richmond Road, Toano, VA and dates back to 1734. For more information call (757) 566-0276.
