Fiber Fest Coming In April To Georgia Mountain Town

What do knitting, pottery and sheep have in common? They’re all part of the fun at the Fiber, Farm & Arts Festival, April 29-May 1, 2016 at the North Georgia Zoo in Cleveland.

Spring is sheep sheering time, which is the inspiration for the annual event. Stop by and you can learn all about sheering, as well as spinning, fiber art and more. There will be creations on display from local vendors specializing in fiber arts, knitting, painting, homesteading and crafts. And if you’d like to try your hand at making something, you can do that too.

Like all good fests, this one will have music and food—something to keeping everyone happy! While at the Zoo, you can pay a visit to one of the many wild and wonderful creatures that live there—kangaroos, birds of prey, wolves to name a few.

If you feel like a hike before or after the fest, hop on the Appalachian Trail, which begins there in Cleveland. The pretty mountain town is also home to The Soda Fountain Cafe, located inside the pharmacy, and the best place to get an old-fashioned ice cream shake.

Then when you’re ready to kick your feet up and relax, head back to the Inn and enjoy another stunning sunset from the deck.
