As one to the largest sheep and wool events in the country, the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival attracts approximately 20,000 visitors over two days and offers a unique advertising opportunity. There are 3 main advertising opportunities – our catalog, our website, and through our sponsorship program. For our 50th anniversary in 2023, we are also offering the opportunity to provide special congratulatory messages.
The Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival catalog contains nearly 200 pages of information about the specific workshops, events, demonstrations, displays, shows, auctions, and competitions at the Festival. Also included are advertisements from local and national companies pertaining to fiber arts or sheep. 3,000 catalogs are printed and distributed each year. They are retained by many Festival attendees as a resource and reference throughout the year. Since advertisers are indexed in the back, a catalog ad is a great way for customers to easily find you again and again.
Web advertising provides year-round exposure to thousands for just $150. In addition to being displayed here on our Advertisers Page, a thumbnail of your ad will be featured in a rotation on the bottom of each page of the website. Clicking on the thumbnail will take the viewer to a full-sized version, which links directly to your web site. Web ads run from March through the following February/March to allow us time to change the site over for the next Festival. They can be purchased year-round.
Our sponsorship program allows your business to support a specific event at the Festival. There are various sponsorship levels which offer varying levels of exposure. Some sponsorship levels include free advertising. More detailed information.
