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.

Catalog Advertisements

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. The deadline for catalog advertisements is January 1st.

Web Advertisements

Web advertising provides year-round exposure to thousands for as little as $100. In addition to being displayed on our Advertisers page, your full color ad will be featured in a rotation on the bottom of each page of the website. Clicking on the smaller ad will take the viewer to a full size version, which links directly to your web site. Web ads run from March through the following January to allow us time to change the site over for the next Festival. They can be purchased year-round.

Sponsorships

Our sponsorship program allows your business to support a specific event at the Festival. There are various price points which offer varying levels of exposure for the sponsor. More detailed information.

Since we weren't able to have a Breed Display Barn this year, some of you might be interested in this webinar that the American Sheep Industry Association recently sponsored.

"In this webinar we explore the amazing diversity of heritage sheep breeds found in America and how many are making a remarkable comeback as interest grows in small scale shepherding and in natural fiber arts. We discuss the decades long effort to bring rare sheep back from the brink of extinction and current efforts to develop new markets for their products. Learn about the conservation work and then listen to experiences of several rare breed sheep farmers as they recount the journey they have undertaken with their amazing sheep breeds"
