Knitters' Fair

Save the date! We hope you will join us on Saturday, September 8th, 2018, at the Kitchener Aud. 2018 marks the 26th anniversary of the Fair, and the 32nd 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). We will publish a sign up sheet for volunteers in the months leading up to the Fair. For volunteer inquiries, contact

Vendor registration is NOW OPEN! Prospective vendors, please click Vendor Info for more information and for the 2018 application form.

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 70 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, attend a free workshop, 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,

2018 location update! We're very happy to be moving back to the Twin Pads this year. Last year, for the 2017 Fair, we relocated all of our vendors to an alternate space while the Twin Pads were undergoing significant renovations. We're excited to have our old space back for 2018.

Visit the Micro Market, a space to showcase smaller local designers and knitting-related businesses.
