Last year was a success for all who pre-ordered and picked up their festival schwag at the dedicated line. No waits!

Getting Here

The festival is at The Dutchess County Fairgrounds
6550 Spring Brook Ave., Rhinebeck, NY 12572 (map link)

There are great options from driving to public transportation to get you to the festival

Where Can You Stay

Be sure to book as far in advance as possible because local hotels fill up fast this time of year. 

Motorscooter and Wheelchair Rental

Unfortunately, neither The Fairgrounds nor the Sheep and Wool Festival can provide mobility scooter rentals this year. Please click here to make your request for mobility scooter or wheelchair rental known. We will try to refer to you a solution.
