2017 Salida


17th Annual Salida Braid-In
Saturday, July 22 9:00 am – Monday, July 24, 4:30 pm 2017

Reservations are open for the 17th 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.
