The NEXT Spindale Dairy Goat Festival is slated for May 20 & 21, of 2011.
Fun Facts: The first ever Spindale Dairy Goat Festival brought between 4-5,000 people to Main Street Spindale, NC on May 22, 2010. It was a one day event, and hosted 160 prize Dairy Goats competing for ribbons and trophies, in the first ADGA Sanctioned Dairy goat show to ever to take place in Spindale.
The Balloon Artist made free balloon animals all day and there were plenty of free activities for the children. Dr. Helmet gave away 100 bicycle helmets!
Six live Bands kept the music going and Goats in Costume paraded down Main Street.
Our youth group, The Goat Festival Kids Committee, helped to raise and donate over $1200 to Heifer International in 2010.
Our Festival hats and t-shirts were all made in the USA and our vendors had averaged about 90% U.S. made goods.
Many people got to taste goat milk cheese, fudge and LaLoos Goat milk Ice Cream for the very first time. We had some wonderful sponsors!
Fact: We need sponsors and volunteers that also love our "Think Globally - Act Locally - Make a difference" mission, to help make our next festival great.
