The Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival is slated September 5-7. The Midwest's premier sheep and fiber event, all within an easy drive from Madison, Milwaukee or Chicago, will be held at the Jefferson Fair Park, in Jefferson.
Spend the weekend as the festival will celebrate the multi-purpose wool and fiber-bearing animals as well as the renewable products they provide.
Sponsored by the Wisconsin Sheep Breeders Cooperative, there will be over 70 fiber arts classes to choose from, along with sheep shows, shearing demonstrations, the Crook & Whistle Stock Dog Trial, newborn lambs, fleece shows and sales, plus educational clinics and workshops for shepherds of any age and level of experience.
Shop in comfort in the Country Store, where over 130 vendors from across the nation offer everything from knitting needles to sheep cheese.
