Knitfest – Yarn and Fibre Arts Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

3 Jul 2021 to 4 Jul 2021 Annual Event

Knitfest 2021 is an exciting Yarn and Fibre Arts Festival, celebrating fibre arts and crafts, embracing the whole community of Maleny on the weekend of July 3 and 4, 2021. They yarn bomb the main street of Maleny, so the town becomes a centre of art, creativity, 18 workshops, music, trade stalls and craft markets. Learn a new skill or craft using yarns and fibre, including knitting, crochet, basket weaving, spinning and weaving, felting and lots more.

Attracting over 10,000 visitors, it’s a fun weekend for all the family including a Stargazing night, Alpaca Expo and judging, Jazz on Sundays, Maleny Arts and Crafts Group demonstrations, displays and sales.

Knitfest features competitions for community groups and skilled artisans to decorate trees in Maleny’s main street with art installations made of yarn and fibre. There are also several competitions to enter. This year’s theme is “There’s a Dragon in my Garden”.

Knitfest volunteers have been working hard, preparing many yarnbombing projects for this year’s event. Volunteers meet every Tuesday in Maleny. If you would like to become involved, sell your crafts or enter the competitions, please contact the Festival Team, all ages welcome. For more information visit their website.
