Thank you for helping make 2019 great!

We hope you enjoyed the 2019 Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, our 46th annual celebration of sheep and wool and the many related activities that they inspire and enable. We could not have done without all the shepherds, vendors, fiber artists, sheep and wool equipment crafters, festival visitors and most importantly committee members and volunteers that make up this awesome community; we tip our hats to you all!

Be sure to mark your calendar for next year’s Festival on May 2 & 3!

In Peace,

Gwen Handler, Chairman, Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

Lee Langstaff, President, Maryland Sheep Breeders Association
