16th Annual Salida Braid-In

Saturday, July 30 9:00 am – Monday, August 1, 4:30 pm 2016

Reservations are open for the 16th Annual Salida Braid-In! The Salida Braid-In is an opportunity for braiders of all levels of experience to braid, share ideas, exchange wool, renew and make new acquaintances, all while making progress on a current project. Braiders come from across the US for 3 glorious days of braiding.

There are many hiking, rafting, and fishing options for the non-braiders in your family to pursue while you enjoy the camaraderie of braiders from far and wide.

If you need a break, you can enjoy a stroll along the Arkansas River while watching kayakers in the river rapids, or enjoy shopping in the antique and art galleries of historic Salida.
