Knitters' Fair

Thank you for another successful KW Knitters' Fair! The 2018 event saw almost 2,000 attendees, 89 vendors, including 13 vendors in our Micro Market, and dozens of volunteers. To all of the attendees, vendors, and volunteers who helped make the Fair possible - THANK YOU!

Save the date for our 2019 event - Saturday September 14, 2019 at the Kitchener Aud. Please note, the 2018 Fair promotional postcard showed the incorrect date for the 2019 event. 2019 marks the 27th anniversary of the Fair, and the 33rd anniversary of the K-W Knitters' Guild

This event is run entirely by volunteers including Guild members, and members of the public. We we couldn't run it without over 100 amazing people who help out. Most volunteer shifts are 2 hours long, and in exchange, you get free entry into the fair (a $7 value). Plan to give a few hours of your time to help make this great event possible in 2019. It's never too early to sign up:

Info for Attendees

The Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters’ Fair is the oldest and largest one-day knitting event in Canada. Organized and hosted by The Kitchener-Waterloo Knitters' Guild, it is truly organized "by knitters, for knitters".

The Fair is held at "The Aud" Kitchener Memorial Auditorium Complex in Kitchener, Ontario, and hosts over 80 vendors offering the latest and greatest of knitting products. The Fair is your one stop shop to see and feel the latest yarn, ogle the vibrant colours, visit with friends, have lunch, listen to a great speaker, be inspired by our Fashion Show, and pamper yourself at our Knitters' Spa. Our vendors offer an incredible selection of yarn and fibre in every colour, knitting books, patterns, buttons, tools, and accessories. We also welcome several vendors who offer fibre for spinning.
