Fleece, Fiber and Family
The fairgrounds are filled with music, food, artisans and animals.
Events include Minnesota’s largest fleece competition, sheep shearing, fleece skirting demos, book-signings and more.
Families always enjoy the sheep and goats in the barn and this year there will be a new Farm Work Stock Dog Trial!
There’s a lot of room to picnic–weather permitting! Bring your spinning wheel, your friends, and spin the day away.
