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, 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!
