Knitfest 2019 is an exciting Yarn & Fibre Arts Festival held on the weekend of July 6th and 7th, 2019, celebrating fibre arts and crafts, and embracing the whole community of Maleny. We yarn bomb and decorate the main street of Maleny so the town becomes a centre of art, creativity, yarnbombing, workshops, music, trade stalls, and craft markets. Now in its 4th year and attracting thousands of visitors, it is a magical festival for families to discover new skills, talents, and creativity with the use of yarns 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 are also several competitions for the Best Beanie, Scarf, Shawls, Tea Cosy etc. The theme for this year is “Australiana”.
