Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival

For those of you with plans for going to this AWESOME spring festival, the new admission fee is well worth it. The Festival is a yarn-lover's dream, where you can appreciate the people and animals that bring the good stuff to you.

Changes for 2017: New Festival hours and admission fee.

We are proud that for 43 years we were able to provide the Festival experience free of charge to the public. A few years ago we began inviting voluntary donations, and we are enormously grateful for the generosity reflected in your willingness to contribute. We have relied heavily on those donations, as the continued success and growth of the Festival have made the job of “putting it on” bigger and more expensive. At the same time, we’ve been teetering on the edge of overwhelming our dedicated volunteers, who are the heart of the Festival. Therefore, this year, for the first time, we will be charging an admission fee.

Important things to know:

--The admission fee is $5.00 per day and applies to adults only; everyone under 18 will be admitted free.

--Gates will now open at 8:30 a.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. This will be strictly enforced. Early entry will no longer be permitted.

--No advance ticket sales. Cash or check only. There will be an exact change lane, so bring your $5 bills!

We appreciate your patience as we go through this year’s transition.

Water Changes Everything.

More about The Water Project for Monday's Jammin' Java Event (hope to see you there to help support this great cause):
The lack of water source in sub-Saharan Africa... It prevents children, especially girls, from attending school since they have to spend most of their day fetching water. When children can’t attend school, it is difficult for them to progress and to find work, which leads to poverty. Many times the water they fetch is filled with water-born diseases. 80% of illnesses are linked to water-related diseases, and almost 90% of child deaths are from diarrhoeal diseases that is directly linked to contaminated water, lack of sanitation, or inadequate hygiene (That's 2,000 children a day). Lack of water also creates a lack of vegetation, which also creates hunger. The Water Project is a transparent organization, who use the funds for various water projects, depending on what the community needs. This can range from drilled wells, sand dams, and rainwater catchments; whichever one is most efficient.
Here's some links if you'd like to further educate yourself.
