July 4-5, 2021 All day
Knitfest 2020 is an exciting weekend Yarn & Fibre Arts Festival held on July 4th and 5th, 2020, celebrating fibre arts and crafts, embracing the whole community of Maleny. We yarnbomb and decorate the main street of Maleny so the town becomes a centre of art, creativity, yarnbombing, workshops, music, trade stalls and craft markets. It is a magical festival for families to discover new skills, talents and creativity using fibre arts including knitting, crochet, basket weaving, spinning and weaving, felting and lots more.
Knitfest features competitions for community groups, art associations and skilled artisans to decorate trees in our beautiful streetscapes with handmade art installations made of yarn and fibre. There is also several smaller competitions for the Best Beanie, Scarf, Shawls, Tea Cosy etc. There’s great prizes too!
Ride the Free Yarnbombed bus as it travels up and down the Festival Precinct so you can get a window seat to see all the attractions and the best yarnbombing.
