This popular Folklife Fair provides demonstrations of sheep shearing, displays of sheep wagons, Kids’ Fluff craft activities, spinning and weaving demonstrations by regional and local artisans, music and dancing by traditional performers, great food and beverages, and over 80 vendors selling their unique crafts and arts.
Admission to the Fair is free and promises fun for all ages.

Our juried arts and crafts show requires vendors to offer handmade items made of wool, wool blends or items related to sheep such as soaps and lotions from lanolin, sheep cheeses or items that augment cooking with lamb. Great photography of sheep and ranch life, jewelry with sheep designs, knitting bowl pottery, items of the Basque and other cultures and more are offered at our day-long fair.

Sheep Shearing Demonstrations by Sherrie Wilde, Tyler Wilde, Paula and John Balderson are every half hour from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Food by the 4-H Leaders Council features a large menu including breakfast burritos, hotdogs, chili, cookies, coffee, soft drinks and water. For those who are looking for great comfort food, they are the place to go to. 4-H has partnered for years with the Festival splitting the proceeds to benefit both groups.
