Sheep Shearing Weekend

At Lake Metroparks Farmpark

Shearing demonstrations presented throughout the weekend show sheep and goats being sheared (removing their winter coats of wool). Sheep and goats are shorn of their winter coats to obtain wool and prevent them from overheating during hot summer weather. This lustrous fiber is used to make many wonderful products from clothing to blankets. Sheep shearing is one of many hands-on opportunities children can experience.

Sheep Shearing Weekend is the place to learn how to spin and weave and make felt during ongoing hands-on demonstrations. Watch a border collie herd sheep and meet fiber-producing sheep. Meet fiber-producing animals including sheep, goats, alpacas and rabbits. Shearing demonstration times:

  • Rainbow sheep shearing (Saturday only) 9:30 a.m.
  • Spinning & weaving (hands-on) 10 a.m. to noon & 2 to 4 p.m.
  • Sheep shearing (electric) 3 p.m.
  • Border collie sheep herding 11:30 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Sheep shearing (blade) 1:30 p.m.
