Exciting Sheep Events at Indiana State Fair

Exciting Sheep Events at Indiana State Fair

The Indiana Sheep Association (ISA) is hosting exciting sheep-themed contests and activities at this year's Indiana State Fair. Apart from the 4-H and open sheep shows, the ISA has organized various events with the support of the Sheep and Wool Market Development Program.

Here are some fun things you can enjoy at the fair:

  • Indiana Make It With Wool (MIWW) Competition: See participants showcase their handmade outfits using wool and wool-blend fabrics on the third floor of the Indiana Arts Building.
  • Indiana State Fair Shearing Contest: Watch professional and amateur sheep shearers compete based on timing, handling, and accuracy at the Champions Pavilion on August 2 at 5 p.m.
  • Open Wool Judging: Visit the Blue-Ribbon Pavilion Wool and Ewe Room on August 4 at 10 a.m. to watch judges comment on wool entries and determine winners.
  • Indiana Sheep-to-Shawl Competition: On August 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Indiana Arts Building's performance floor, youth and adult teams will race against the clock to create a wool shawl from scratch.

Throughout the fair, you can also see sheep on display at the Blue-Ribbon Pavilion during open and 4-H shows from August 4 to 20. For more shopping fun, explore the ISA Wool and Ewe Room with products from Indiana-based vendors, including handmade goods and country-themed fashion.

Don't forget to check out Ewe 2, the Wool Room's sister shop, offering various apparel and jewelry styles.

And if you're a fan of tasty treats, head to the Indiana Farm Bureau (IFB) Fall Creek Pavilion on August 10 and 11 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. to get free samples of lamb summer sausage as part of the IFB's Taste of Indiana Farms event.

Get ready for a fun-filled time with sheep and more at the Indiana State Fair!
