To the NH Sheep & Wool Festival Committee, Vendors, Educators, Presenters, and Patrons,

It is with deep sadness and after much consideration that we announce the cancellation of the 2021 NHSWGA Sheep & Wool Festival slated for Mother’s Day weekend in May. We began discussing this possibility in December, holding out hope that we would be able to move forward by spring. The safety of our exhibitors, vendors and guests has always been our top priority. With the continued concerns around COVID 19 we made the difficult decision to cancel our beloved festival this year. Our vendors were considered in making this decision. 

The Association recognizes and thanks the members of the Festival Committee. They have worked with enthusiasm over the past two years to plan this annual weekend of farm and fiber fun. We would also like to thank the many educators, artists, and vendors that had agreed to help make this a cornerstone event of the New England fiber community. 

We remain committed to bringing you an outstanding fiber experience packed with educational workshops, crafting sessions, sheep breed exhibits, dog handling demonstrations, and friends to gather with. We will return to the Deerfield Fairgrounds in May of 2022. We look forward to hosting you!

With Regards,
Stephanie LaRochelle
NHSWGA president
