Dickson is located just an hour West of Nashville, just 5 miles off of I-40 exit 172. There are several new hotels/motels at that exit from the major chains; Fairfield Inn & Suites (Brand new), Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn, Best Western, etc., along with restaurants like Applebee’s, Logan’s, O’Charlie’s and Cracker Barrel close to the interstate.
We are also close to beautiful Montgomery Bell State Park which features campgrounds, hiking trails, and recreation for the whole family.
Facebook Group : We use the group to have discussions about the festival.
Once again we will have a fleece auction. This is a great way to sell your fiber, wool, alpaca, mohair, angora or whatever fiber you want to sell. Fleeces should be entered on Friday morning and must be picked up by 4 pm Saturday. You will receive a check for what you sold. The festival will take 10% off the top.
Each fleece or lot must be labeled with the Bid Sheet Fleece Auction Bidding Sheet and you must have a list off everything you enter, basically an inventory sheet. fleece auct.-directions and Log sheet.
