Welcome to the 2021 New York State Sheep & Wool Festival! This year's event will be a combination of on-site and online.
Workshop registration is now open!
Join us in person at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds to visit and shop with our vendors, attend our Sheep & Goat Shows, shop the Fleece Sale, visit the Breed & Camelid Barns, view a fiber competition or two, and enjoy a variety of author talks.
Workshops, Demos, and Breed Talks will be held online. Some offerings require advance registration.
Tickets are available via the Dutchess County Fairgrounds! Click here to purchase.
As part of our COVID protocols, tickets are SINGLE DAY ONLY, meaning you must buy a separate ticket for Saturday or Sunday.
Thank you for your patience as we navigate this strange year and we look forward to seeing you in Rhinebeck and online!
