Food at the Festival
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.
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 lamb cuts from local producers, as well as sheep’s milk cheese, goat’s milk cheese, and local honey.
Our Festival Farm Market (outdoors, near the main gate) keeps getting stronger, featuring locally grown, crafted, and prepared farm goods. Stop by for:
- Lamb and mutton
- Baked Goods
- Jams & Jellies
- Skin Care Products
- Beer from Milkhouse Brewery
The Big Tent in the Farm Market will have cooking and cheesemaking demonstrations with local chefs and cheesemakers, including Colleen Histon of Shepherds Manor Creamery. Colleen will also have her award winning artisan sheep cheese for sale. Check the sign board outside the tent for demonstration times.
Bring your cooler and become part of the farm-to-fork (or pasture-to-plate) movement!
