31st Annual Sheepshearing Festival at Gore Place
Now in its 31st year, this outdoor, farm festival has become a family favorite and a tradition throughout the region!
Enjoy demonstrations of sheep-shearing, herding dogs, spinning, weaving and gardening on a beautiful 50 acre estate.
Our festival features both traditional manual blade sheep shearing and electric sheep shearing. Sheep fleeces are collected and later sold. Our merino sheep are sheared the traditional way and other sheep are brought in for the electric shearing.
Our fiber tent area offers dozens of fiber artists specializing in wool yarn, roving, knitting kits, and finished wool products. Some even bring animals or special demonstrations. Here is a list of our 2017 Fiber Tent Crafters.
Our crafter area has 75 booths with artisans selling handmade candles, birdhouses, jewelry, metalwork, pottery, and more! Here is the list of our 2017 Crafters.
