Welcome to the Eventbrite site for the 2023 Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival, our 50th annual festival! Complete details about the Festival can be found on our website, www.sheepandwool.org.

You can use this site to buy tickets, order a catalog, register for a pre-festival Shepherds Seminar or Family Activity, or make a donation to support the future of the festival. Coming soon: Purchase tickets for the Saturday Shepherd's Feast or Sunday Breakfast Buffet.

Admission to the Festival this year is $10.00 per day for adults 18 and over; anyone under 18 will be admitted free. Buy your advance tickets here. Please note there is a processing fee for all online sales. You can also pay at the gate by cash or check.

As we recover from three years of pandemic-related losses, and face steep increases in the costs of goods and services required to put on the Festival, we find we have no choice but to raise our admission fee if we want the Festival to remain sustainable for another 50 years. With free parking and free admission for everyone under the age of 18, even at $10 we feel we are still one of the best values around, and we hope that you do too.

Looking for registration for Fiber Arts Seminars? Find that at lessonface.com/sheepandwool2023.

Ready to begin? Click on the "Get Tickets" button to get started (even if you just want to buy a catalog).

Refund Policy


Admission tickets are non-refundable. Unused tickets will be considered a donation to the Festival.
