The Connecticut Sheep, Wool and Fiber Festival will be celebrating its 101st anniversary in 2010.

The festival, started in 1909 by the CT Sheep Breeders Association, as a program “to promote the keeping of sheep in Connecticut”, has evolved and expanded into a premier sheep and fiber festival by providing exhibits, demonstrations and vendors from the sheep, wool and fiber arena. This event is a delightful agricultural and learning experience for the general public as well as shepherds and fiber enthusiasts.

Exhibits and activities include: sheep exhibits, shearing demonstrations; vendors, fleece sale, educational lectures; ox cart rides, wool skirting, a sheep dog trial, fleece to shawl contests, kids corner, knitting instruction, ask the veterinarian, food, vendors, ox cart rides, festival logo shirts, music, vendors and fun.
