Event description

Description

Ever see a sheep get a haircut? Join us on the farm for one of our signature events! Check out shearing demos throughout the afternoon with our flock of Cotswold and Cormo sheep. The fiber arts will be celebrated at the festival through craft-making activities and demonstrations in needle-felting, wool spinning and weaving. Enjoy in-depth tours with our farmers and stop by the Con Edison Ecology booth to Adopt-a-Worm for vermicomposting. Move to the foot-stomping rhythms of bluegrass duo Coyote & Crow and enjoy kids crafts, hayrides and tasty local food on the farm all day. Pick up flower and vegetable seedlings for your spring garden at our Plant Sale. New this year, Queens’ own Bridge & Tunnel Brewery will host a Beer Garden with featured brews for Sheep Shearing Festival! One ticket price for all ages (adults and children).
