Sheep & Wool Showcase a Success


A beautiful day at the Clermont Historic Site with fun for all ages celebrated the wonders of sheep and wool!
If you missed us this year, make sure to visit next year!

April 23rd, 2016      11-4pm  

The Chancellor’s Sheep & Wool Showcase is a family festival that celebrates historic fiber arts, culture, and craft. We host a shopping concourse featuring over 30 skilled artisans and local craftspeople. This is a great place to support small businesses!

The Showcase boasts two dozen local vendors.

As the first of the wool festival season, we are the place to get over your cabin fever with brilliantly colored yarns, roving, and hand-woven scarves. Craft guilds will demonstrate spinning and weaving throughout the day.  Herding and sheep shearing—using three different historic techniques!—form the centerpiece of the action. Find crafts for kids, 18th century reenactors, and live traditional music all in one beautiful location!

Demonstration of historic wool processing by the 1st Ulster County Militia.

The price for entry is just $8 per vehicle ($6 for Friends of Clermont)  so fill the car up with family and friends for a day of shopping and fun!
