The Triennale Outaouais, August 18 - September 16, is a celebration of fibre that will feature outdoor art installations, indoor exhibitions, films, workshops and lectures.
Many venues will collaborate to stage this event, most located in the Gatineau Hills area north of Ottawa. Check out their website for further information.
Another celebration of fibre, this one with a different orientation, the upcoming Twist Festival runs August 20 - 21, in St.-André-Avellin, a small town in the same general region. This fifth annual iteration of Twist will feature 125 vendors, plus workshops, demos and lectures. Yarn, knitting and weaving feature prominently in this event. Their website gives more details.
