2022 New York State Sheep & Wool Festival

When: Sat., Oct. 15, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 16, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

The Northeast’s thriving sheep industry is showcased and celebrated each year in this famous festival that draws a multitude of visitors from across the country to the lovely village of Rhinebeck. Prepare for a slightly scaled-back, hybrid event this October. Vendors will be placed throughout the property, both in buildings and outside, leaving room for proper spacing and distancing. Your day will include fiber artists and crafts galore, amazing sheep herding demonstrations, frisbee dogs, and a petting zoo.

The Fleece Sale, Breed Barn, Camelids & Cashmeres Barn, Equipment Auction, Sheep Sale, and (possibly) a few Fiber Competitions will also make a return to in-person activities this fall! We’ll also be welcoming back Merritt Books for various author talks and signings on-site.

Certain Festival favorites will be staying online this year. No in-person workshops will be taking place, but a curated selection will be available to take virtually on the Thursday and Friday of that week. You’ll also find demonstrations, farm tours, and other educational videos online, as well as a handful of Vendors offering virtual sales via our website.

Lastly, Festival souvenirs will only be available via online ordering and will be shipped out at the end of the event.
