For many weeks now, The Woolies have been building and planning, making sure that Wooly Fair VII, To the Moon! will be a wild spectacle of galactic proportions. On July 30th, we’ll be rocketing you into a lunar wilderness, full of games, live music, spontaneous theater, and, of course, the WOOLY SPACE STATION. The Space Station will be comprised of 21 pentagonal pods, which are being created for the sole purpose of entertaining and inspiring you via shimmering, interactive, artist-made installations.
Here’s a glimpse of what’s in the works and what to expect on your maiden voyage To the Moon!

Wooly Fair is always looking for volunteers. In return, you’ll get free entrance into Wooly Fair, you’ll immerse yourself into a fantastic creative community, and you’ll be helping to launch the most dynamic art party of the summer! This week we have a specific call for volunteers from Damian Ewens:
“A plea for Moon Dome team members! Interested in helping build Providence’s largest geodesic DJ Dome?! Email firstname.lastname@example.org and Jessica Brown email@example.com We will be meeting Wednesdays and Sunday Wooly Work Days at the Steel Yard. We need translucent material (think white vinyl, sails etc) and people with interest or experience stitching and/or access to sewing machines!”
If you love Wooly Fair, or even if you’ve never been to Wooly Fair but you believe in the power of tranformation through participatory art, please consider supporting our Kickstarter Campaign. By supporting, you can also get discounted tickets and other awesome swag!
