Cancel your plans, this weekend is the Chancellor’s Sheep and Wool Showcase in Germantown. No one here is pulling the wool over your eyes. Round up the family for a lively, outdoor celebration of all things sheep. Learn to herd and shear sheep using three different historic techniques. Then, see how craft guilds spin, weave, dye, and knit wool into soft, colorful creations.


Guests can shop from over a dozen local artisans, including Birch Hollow Fibers, Whole Knit 'N' Caboodle, Pandia’s Jewels, and River Ridge Dye Works. Plus, enjoy live traditional music, crafts for kids, and food. The Chancellor’s Sheep & Wool Showcase 2018 is on Saturday, April 21 from 11am to 4pm at 87 Clermont Avenue. Visit the Friends of Clermont website for more information and a full list of participating vendors.

Just $10/vehicle (only $8/vehicle for Friends of Clermont members).
