The 2nd Annual Quilcene Fiber Festival hosted by the Quilcene Historical Museum at Worthington Park in Quilcene on October 7 attracted a record crowd of over 600 attendees and included sheep dog demonstrations, sheep shearing, Wool Waulkers singing circle, the Sacred Harp singers, the Olympic Peninsula Alpaca Rescue, and close to 20 fiber artist vendors outside in the beautiful meadow and in the newly restored Victorian Mansion (the 1892 Hamilton-Worthington House).
The Quilcene Historical Museum partners with Fiber and Clay to celebrate the extraordinarily diverse talents in our region.
Festival visitors enjoyed performances, live music, a food court, workshops, animals, and many vendors in the newly restored 1892 Hamilton-Worthington Mansion, open meadows, the Linger Longer Outdoor Theatre, near the 1915 Historic Barn and inside the Quilcene Historical Museum.
The event was free to the public. This was likely the largest business event in Quilcene for 2023. Photos by Jeff Childs.
