The Festival serves to showcase, and provide a marketplace for, the amazing range of products, services, activities, skills and artistry that both support and reflect the spectacular versatility and variety of what sheep have to offer.
We area a competitive juried show. Each year we receive an increasing number of applications for a limited number of vendor booth spaces. The Vendor Committee encourages all potential applicants to visit the Festival to get a flavor of the type of products sold. We are looking for unique or rare or exciting products that help us meet our mission. We have a sophisticated customer base and we have an opportunity to provide them with products they cannot find anywhere else.

Food Vendor Inquiries
Food vendors are primarily provided through a contract with the Howard County Fairgrounds itself. The Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival is only able to hire food vendors who sell lamb products. If you are interested in applying, and sell lamb, please contact for more information.
