This celebration of all things warm and fuzzy returns for another year to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds in Rhinebeck on October 18 and 19, continuing its legacy since 1980. This outdoor family-friendly event dives into sheep culture with shearing demonstrations, knitting and spinning competitions, a llama parade, yarn vendors galore, canine competitions, and much more.
