Sheep & Wool Festival 2024

Coggeshall Farm will be a host to all things wool-related as we bring back an old favorite with a new name. Learn about and see demonstrations of sheep shearing, wool processing, dyeing, weaving, and spinning. Shop with vendors and artisans from RI and New England. Listen to live music by Atwater-Donnelly and Lewis Pacheco. Visit with the farm’s sheep and see visiting animals that provide us with the fiber for our craft. Rain or Shine!

Pre-registration is HIGHLY recommended and tickets may sell out!

Please note: The Sheep & Wool Festival is a special event and discounts that apply to standard daytime admission do not apply.

Sheep & Wool Showcase

Have you knit a fabulous shawl? Photographed a charming flock of sheep? We’d love to show off your creation. You’re invited to participate in our first Sheep & Wool Showcase. We are seeking artwork, crafts, and other hand-made items inspired by the animals and fiber we will celebrate at the Coggeshall Farm Sheep & Wool Festival. Pieces will be on display at the Festival under an open-sided tent. Festival attendees will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite piece, and the winner will receive a family membership to Coggeshall Farm Museum and a sheep-themed goodie. Learn more.
