Sheep & Wool Festival

In October, join us for a day trip to the Duchess County Sheep & Wool Festival at the Duchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck, NY. Shop for all kinds of fleece, yarn and supplies. Workshops, crafts, contests and sheep. 

Have you driven yourself to the festival before? This time, relax in peace and let someone else drive. Order your festival entry ticket in advance, print it at home, then breeze through the lines and step right in to the fair.

The festival occurs each year in October.
