Massachusetts Sheep and Wool Festival
The Massachusetts Sheep and Wool Festival is this weekend May 27-28th, 2006 in the lovely town of Cummington, Massachusetts. Cummington is west of Northampton on Route 9 - not a long trip from Boston and definitely worth the ride. It looks to be good weather too!
I like this show because it is very friendly but there is still plenty to see. It has a very family-ish atmosphere - with plenty of interesting fibers, sheep dogs, people and, of course, sheep to entertain you, your friends, and your family. The price is right too - only $5/carload. After a few hours at the Fair, it won't be too late to visit Northampton or North Adams.
