About the Natural Fiber Extravaganza

Natural Fiber Extravaganza

The Natural Fiber Extravaganza powered by Alpaca Owners Association, Inc. (AOA) returns to Lebanon, Tennessee, in 2021. Hundreds of alpaca fans and fiber artists from across the country will join us over the weekend to celebrate natural fiber through hands-on workshops, seminars, live animals, and vendors.

Register for a whole weekend of seminars or for a few workshops. Or just drop by to shop and check out the live animals. There is something for everyone this weekend!

Hours are:

Friday, July 9, 2021 • 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Saturday, July 10, 2021 • 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Sunday, July 11, 2021 • 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The Natural Fiber Extravaganza will be held at the Wilson County Exposition Center in Lebanon, Tennessee, along with the AOA National Fleece Show, National Alpaca Photo Competition, and the AOA Student Design Competition.

Lodging is available at our host hotel, the Holiday Inn Express, located just a short six-minute drive (3 miles) away. RV Camping is also available at the Wilson County Fairgrounds for $25 per day. Reserve your spot when you register for the event.
