Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival
The Wisconsin Sheep Breeders Cooperative Board of Directors announces a modified format of the 2020 Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival. The rationale for this modified event is based on guidelines presented to WSBC by our host site, Jefferson County Fair Park.
The 2020 Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival in a virtual as well as live format that would include the following events, as well as other virtual events or features, if deemed financially effective.
- * Fleece Sale
- * Sheep Shows
- * Lead-line Competition
- * Virtual Photo Contest
- * Virtual Poster Contest
- * Make it with Wool Competition
The festival will be held in this modified format for one year. Our Country Store vendors will be featured on the festival website and Facebook page where we will provide links and and/or contact information through which you may support those small business entrepreneurs who help to make this event possible.
Thank-you for your support and understanding in this time as we continue to meet the WSBC mission and by-laws through our premier event, The Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival.
The Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival will launch the Virtual Country Store Marketplace and Country Store Live. The Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Online Community is currently live and will be updated as we get closer to the actual Virtual Country Store Weekend.
This year, in lieu of a live Country Store experience, we are inviting everyone to a new shopping experience that will showcase our participating Country Store vendors. More than 60 vendors will be showcased in the Virtual Country Store Marketplace on the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool Festival website. Fiber enthusiasts will be able to expand their product search, connect with their favorite vendors, and shop online throughout the coming year!
You will also be able to join the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Online Community Group on Facebook where you can interact with your fellow fiber friends and learn more about the Facebook Virtual Country Store Weekend which will take place September 10-13. You’ll see the participating vendors and the time slots they have selected to showcase their store, product videos and even interact with their customers.
This is in addition to the other virtual festival activities and anticipated live events that are taking place under the 2020 modified festival format.
