Food at the Festival

Jump To:

Our hosts at the Howard County Fairgrounds provide a wide variety of fair-style food concession booths throughout the grounds. From ribbon chips to ice cream, gyros to cotton candy, there is plenty to snack on.

There are also food booths throughout the grounds serving mouth-watering lamb dishes, from lamburgers and leg of lamb sandwiches to gyros and lamb sausages. For a veggie-friendly option, check out Artichoke French!

Looking for a sit-down meal? We have the Saturday Shepherds Feast and Sunday Breakfast Buffet. Pre-registration is required. A limited number of tickets will be available at the door on a first come, first served basis.

If you are shopping for food to take home with you, be sure and visit the Home Arts Building. There you will find Fresh Maryland Lamb — primal cuts, leg of lamb, leg steaks, loin chops, rack of lamb, lamb patties, lamb sausage — as well as sheep’s milk cheese, goat’s milk cheese and local honey. Our Festival Farm Market outdoors near the main gate returns this year, featuring local pasture raised lamb cuts and other edible goodies. There will be entertainment, and cooking demonstrations, too! Bring your cooler and become part of the farm-to-fork (or pasture-to-plate) movement!

Thank you!

Another Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival has come and gone, and we could not have done without all of you – Festival goers, volunteers, Festival Committee members, shepherds, and participants in so many activities, competitions and demonstrations! It is amazing to see this come together with all categories of participants contributing to its success. We tried some new things this year, and had a little bad weather to deal with, and we appreciate everyone’s understanding, support, and good cheer. Thanks to everyone for participating in our 44th celebration of all things sheep & wool! We are already thinking about how to do even better next year!

In Peace,

Gwen Handler, Chairman, Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Lee Langstaff, President, Maryland Sheep Breeders Association
