Shepherd's Harvest Festival is an opportunity for rural and urban people to meet and share information about sheep and sheep products and other fiber-producing animals.

Planning is underway for the 2008 Shepherd's Harvest Festival. As activities develop, the details will be posted on this site. To give you a flavor of the Festival, we have left the 2007 activities online.

Mark your calendars now to reserve the dates and bookmark this site and return often to keep informed as the latest information about the Festival will be posted here.

The Festival was started in order to provide a venue where wool producers, wool consumers and wool artisans could come together and share the excitement of working with sheep and their fantastic product - wool. Gradually, the Festival has grown to include other fiber animals such as angora rabbits, alpacas, and goats.

The Festival strives to be a family oriented event that is not only fun but educational. Numerous classes are offered in the fiber arts -- geared for all levels of experience -- from the beginner to the expert. Each year, we offer some classes in the less well known fiber arts so students can expand their crafts expertise.

Many vendors of fiber and fiber animal related products show their wares at the Festival through a juried selection of vendors of unique products. If it's fiber related, you probably will find a vendor with just what you have been looking for.

To add to the fun of the Festival, there is live entertainment each day. Demonstrations are ongoing for sheep shearing, herding dogs, rabbit agility, spinning and knitting. Activities are planned to spark the interest of youngsters.

Judging, showing and selling of fiber from sheep, angora rabbits and alpacas give you the opportunity to view some of the finest fleeces in the Upper Midwest and to compare your skills at selecting fleece with highly regarded fleece judges.

There are many activities at the Festival. Feel free to peruse the activities listed in the right hand column of events at the Shepherd's Harvest Festival. Then come and join in the fun at this year's Festival!
