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! We’re so glad you’re going to visit our fair.
To help you get the most out of your weekend, here is a list of tips.
Our fair has several food vendors for you to choose from, but if you’re hungry before or after your visit, nearby towns have places to get lunch or a snack.
The Creamery, in Cummington
Spruce Corner, in Goshen
Local Burgy, Williamsburg Snack Bar, Brewmasters Tavern, Bread Euphoria, all in Williamsburg.
Numerous establishments in Dalton and Pittsfield.
Numerous establishments in Northampton.
Cummington is a rural area with lots of natural barriers that block cell phone and WiFi use, thus many vendors do not take credit cards. Plan on bringing cash.
The nearest ATM is at the Old Creamery. To get there from the fair, make a right out of the main gate and then take a left onto Route 9 West. The Old Creamery is about a mile down on the left.
It’s a good idea to be wearing appropriate clothing. Check the weather before you come, so you know if it would be a good idea to bring a jacket or an umbrella. To be the most comfortable, dress in layers. Closed-toe shoes are highly recommended in the sheep barns.
The Info Booth is right in front of the Exhibit Hall. If you need to know where the bathrooms are, or what time a workshop starts, this is the place to ask.
For the safety of all animals on display at the event, please leave your dogs and pets at home.
