Welcome to Loch Ness Knit Fest 2017!

13TH -15TH OCTOBER 2017



Join us in the heart of the Highlands this Autumn for three days packed full of knitting wonder.

Loch Ness Knit Fest is an unmissable event which takes place in the Highland Capital, Inverness. In our first year we welcomed over 1200 visitors from over 20 different countries.

Inspired by the hugely successful The Danish Fano Strikkefestival and following on from last years inaugural Loch Ness Knit Fest, our second year again pulls on the region’s rich cultural and crafting history.

With a marketplace double that of last years, a new venue and a proposed immersive programme of events featuring hands-on wool workshops, lectures, fashion shows and a whole host of entertainment, Loch Ness Knit Fest 2017 is a date for your calendar.

Let the knitting commence – connect, share and create!
