2017 New York Sheep & Wool Festival

Filed Under (Events, Road Trips) by Joy Jannotti on 22-10-2017

Saturday, October 21, 2017 a small group of us took the bus to Rhinebeck, NY for the annual New York Sheep & Wool Festival. The bus left Emmaus at the early hour of 6:30am and we were in the Duchess County fairgrounds by 9:30am. It was a beautiful day for walking around the barns, starting out cool and warming up nicely by afternoon. We went through the bigger barns first, acquiring a few things along the way. After lunch we shed our coats and headed for the smaller barns. We walked around the fairgrounds with a few thousand of our friends, shopping, looking at animals and admiring the wonderful knits on display everywhere. We saw our friend Nancy at Tika Bags; she will be at our Knit Out again this January. After a break with some refreshing apple cider, it was back on the bus at 4pm and homeward bound. Everyone was tuckered out by the end of our glorious day. See you next year in Rhinebeck!
