IDAHO FIBER RESOURCES
GRAZING HILLS FIBER ARTS FESTIVAL
JULY 1O & 11, 2021
9am - 5pm Saturday, 10am - 3pm Sunday
A family owned and operated alpaca farm located in Viola, Idaho, Grazing Hills is settled in the rolling hills of the Palouse. Katie DeWinkle, her entourage of 6 daughters and her easy-going husband, Cory, manage and run their farm, the Country Store and their B&B. They currently raise over 50 huacaya alpacas, sheep, ducks, chickens, cows, and a few horses.
The idea behind the Grazing Hills Fiber Festival began in 2018, with the help of her friend, Christine Nauman of Wooly Pines Farm in Moscow. It took shape and was launched in July 2019 and again in July 2020, even during the COVID madness!
We strive to continue the event each July and build upon our mistakes and successes. We have been blessed with wonderful vendors, talented artists and teachers, and a great turnout of attendees the past 2 years. We hope to continue that and have another successful Festival this July!

TRAILING OF THE SHEEP FESTIVAL
October 6-10, 2021
Be a part of another year of stories as we meet our mission to gather, present and preserve the history
and culture of sheep ranching and herding in Idaho and the West.
In its 20+ years, the Festival has expanded greatly
from its humble beginnings, yet the goals and objectives of the Festival remain the same—preserving the stories and history of sheep ranchers and herders, celebrating the rich cultures of the past and present, and entertaining and educating children and adults about the production of local food and fiber that have sustained local economies for generations.
