Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival

Three wonderful days are in store for you at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival, each year on a September weekend at the Jefferson County Fair Park in Jefferson, Wisconsin! Fill your days with an array of activities at the multiple venues across the festival.

The Activity Center is the hub of activity, including contests, auctions, Shepherd's Workshops and Wool Show and topping that off with a Lamb Dinner on Saturday evening. Education abounds in the two buildings full of Wonders of Wool classes. Follow the sheep to the Sheep Barns and Stock Exchange and show ring.

The Country store has over 130 exhibitors from across the country, offering everything from sheep supplies and products; baskets to drop spindles; yarn to jewelry; rug looms to roving.

One indoor arena houses the Used Equipment Auction. The second Indoor Arena provides both sheep and education with displays and demonstrations throughout the festival.

There is plenty of activity outside the buildings. Watch stock dogs entered from across the Midwest compete on the open field. Several knitting and fiber activities take place outside as well.

Visit all the areas of the festival and enjoy, even be amazed, at the diversity of the sheep industry and the enthusiasm of those who support it.
