We here at the Kentucky Wool Festival have a few simple goals we attempt to accomplish each year. They include, but are not limited to:

  • To hold an annual event that takes place the 1st full weekend every October.
  • Be unique. 
  • Promote sheep, wool products, and the local community. 
  • Have heritage demonstrations going on throughout the festival.
  • Offer activities for all age groups. Maintain a family oriented atmosphere.
  • Provide an opportunity for community and school organizations, crafts people, and individuals to raise money as an alternative of door to door sales or fund raising drives.
  • Entertain the public by providing an environment where the people can meet, have fun, hear live music, and learn about our history.
