Wisconsin Weekend: Spring 2024 Fiber Extravaganza

The 2024 Spring Fiber Extravaganza is a great opportunity to enjoy a road trip and learn about fiber farms around Manitowoc and Sheboygan Counties. The Extravaganza consist of a self-guided scenic road trip with roughly 30 minutes of driving time to three different fiber farms in or near Manitowoc County to visit alpacas, goats, llamas, sheep, ducks, turkeys and more. It runs Friday, Saturday, and Sunday May 3rd-5th and takes place at these three farms:

All three invite you to visit the farms, meet the animals, learn more about agriculture, and shop their stores or vendors. This is FREE, open-house style event at all of the farms.

Spring Fiber Extravaganza activities

For everyone’s enjoyment and safety, children must be supervised at all times, no smoking or running is allowed, and safety rules at each farm must be strictly followed.

Spring Fiber Extravaganza Location Map:

A trip along Highway 147, which runs between Two Rivers and Maribel, is a fun one for this event. You can easily head down I-43 to Velvet Sheep Farms, which is just off Highway 42 northwest of the interchange. While you’re road tripping in the area, check out great food and beverages at locations throughout Manitowoc County along the Wisconsin Coastal Food Trail. You can also explore downtown Two Rivers with its vibrant shops, Nashotah Beach, Historic Rogers Street Fishing Village, the Washington House (birthplace of the ice cream sundae), and more. Closer to Maribel, stop off Highway 147 and up County R just a mile or so and explore Cherney Maribel Caves County Park, which offers great hiking trails and showcases the Niagara Escarpment beautifully. Down at Velvet Sheep Farms, you’re right by Sheboygan with its bustling downtown complete with museums, theater, a busy and fun harborfront district, wide variety of restaurant cuisine, and more right down Highway 42. If you crave breweries on this road trip, Cool City Brewing is one block off Highway 42 in Two Rivers, Manitowoc features PetSkull Brewing, Sabbatical Brewing, and Craft Creek Brewing. In Sheboygan, a visit to 3 Sheeps Brewing is a must!

Happy road tripping on the Spring Fiber Extravaganza… who knows what else it can lead to??
