Note that this is NOTHING LIKE MARYLAND SHEEP AND WOOL in chaos, confusion, size or sprawl. This is a reasonably *small* fiber festival, where you can see everything on display twice, shop, and eat lunch all in about four hours. There is a fashion display area, a fleece sales tent, a crafting tent, and various vendors. There are also non-stop sheepdog "trials" (competitions) on both days that are not out in the way beyond, but just past the end of the *small* breeds display. Note that there is no pavement, so this is not terribly handicapped-friendly.
Places of note for you to see and shop:
Kid Hollow Farm
Misty Mountain Farm
My Favorite Yarn Shop
Peavine Hollow Farm - if you've ever lusted after my colored mohair yarns, here's the source for the dyed locks.
