This event is a delightful agricultural and learning experience for the general public as well as shepherds and fiber enthusiasts. Exhibits and activities include: shearing demonstrations, vendors, fleece sale, a sheep dog trial, a kids' activity corner, knitting instruction, food, music, and fun.

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 over 60 vendors from the sheep, wool and fiber arena, with many of them from Connecticut.
