Parade of Sheep Breeds

The American sheep industry offers a wide range of genetic diversity. To celebrate that diversity and showcase the contributions of different breeds of sheep, the 2022 Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival will feature a Parade of Sheep Breeds that will include many rare and exotic breeds. As countries from around the world have contributed to the sheep industry in the United States, the breeds will be introduced by their country of origin. England, New Zealand, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Iceland, and Africa will be represented.

Warm up for the Festival with Winterfest 2023!

Two days of virtual spinning, knitting, and felting classes on January 28 and 29.
