The Hagerstown Fiber Fest is for fiber enthusiasts of all ages and experiences, and is positioned to reach audiences from Western Maryland, South Central Pennsylvania, the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia, and the Northern Shenandoah Valley. HFF will offer demonstrations, vendors of fibers and accessories, a place to connect with other fiber lovers and work on projects, and of course great food!

Dear Downtown Business Colleagues,

The entrepreneurs behind The Yarn Shop are organizing the first ever Hagerstown Fiber Fest taking place on Saturday, October 7th, from 9am-4pm in University Plaza. This event will feature fiber vendors selling yarn, accessories, and handcrafted items like sweaters and hats; demonstrations of spinning and weaving; and of course, food and music to tie the whole thing together.


Because we love Downtown Hagerstown and want to lift everyone up, we are inviting Downtown Hagerstown restaurants FIRST to vend at the event. You can cook on-site, bring prepared items to the Plaza, or use your food truck or cart. Whatever it is, we want you there!


There is NO FEE for Downtown Hagerstown restaurants to participate. We DO ask for your firm commitment by filling out the agreement form below and returning it to us no later than MONDAY, MAY 16. Only after May 16, if we do not have enough participation from Downtown Hagerstown restaurants, will we reach out to food trucks and other potential food vendors to participate.


Contact me with any questions. We hope you’ll join us!



Melissa Noel

Owner, The Yarn Shop
