Wyoming Sheep & Wool Festival
Kemmerer | Salt to Stone
Make plans to bring your family to enjoy arts, educational and cultural events celebrating Wyoming’s sheep and wool industry, meet the animals, feast on some great lamb, browse through vendor booths, and then dance to live music at an after-dinner party on Saturday night.
Events will begin on Friday afternoon with an educational session about range management before we gather for the art show and reception, along with a panel discussion about the area’s sheep and wool heritage provided from multi-generational perspectives.
During the festival, domestic sheep flocks will be moving along their migration trails, leaving the desert sagebrush rangelands and headed to the high country of the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Festival attendees can go on a self-guided tour to see the flocks on the move, or sign up for a commercial tour and join in moving the sheep wagons and providing other support activities for the local shepherds. It’s a great chance to see the animals and people who live alongside them in action.
Saturday’s events include an all-day vendor fair, and programming for all ages, followed by the “Sheepherders Come Bye” lamb feast. During dinner, some folks will be honored with awards, and then the band will start up, so bring your dancing boots!
Sunday morning brings other educational activities, and members of the Wyoming Wool Growers Association will come together for a business meeting.
