Due To Covid-19 Concerns The 2020 Massachusetts Sheep & Woolcraft Fair Has Been Cancelled
The Massachusetts Sheep & Woolcraft Fair Committee regretfully announces cancellation of our May 23 & 24, 2020 Fair at the Cummington Fairgrounds. Circumstances involving COVID-19 and large group gatherings make this the safe and responsible decision despite our sadness at disrupting 45 continuous years of this agricultural event. We look forward to seeing you at next year’s Massachusetts Sheep & Woolcraft Fair scheduled for May 29 & 30, 2021 at the Cummington Fairgrounds.
Welcome to our fair!
The Massachusetts Sheep and Woolcraft Fair began in 1974 with an idea presented at a potluck dinner at the home of Henry and Virginia Easterbrooks. The fair began as a spin off of a youth sheep judging contest. The main purpose was to have a statewide sheep show. The fair has been held at the Cummington Fairgrounds every year except one. As the fair grew areas associated with sheep were added; dog trials, vendors, sheep and fleece auctions, leadline and other fiber animals. As time has gone by, the lamb bits have become a signature food item, parking lots are full on both days, the fiber workshops are full of variety and people and the fair is still run largely on a volunteer basis.
