With much regret the Massachusetts Sheep and Wool Craft Committee has made the hard decision not to hold a fair in 2021. Putting on a quality event in a safe and responsible manner is our priority and the current situation does not allow that. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the 2022 Fair!
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.
