The Museum welcomes the warmth of spring by trimming the winter’s heavy growth of wool from their flock of sheep. Students and families are invited to join the Museum in celebration of this pioneer tradition.

Sheep Shearing Days include demonstrations of shearing, carding, spinning, weaving, and other ways that pioneers turned fleece into woven goods. Guests will also enjoy sheep herding, Appalachian music, an animal meet & greet, storytelling, and several historic demonstrations, including soap carving, beekeeping, sawmilling, blacksmithing, pioneer gardening, and dulcimer lessons.

Admission includes a tour of the Museum mountain farm and village, which contains some three-dozen historic log structures, exhibit halls filled with thousands of Appalachian artifacts, gardens, and free-range farm animals.

School groups, home-schooled students, families, and individuals are all welcome to attend.

Special student and group rates are available, and the event is free for Museum members. Groups of 20 or more, please call 865-494-7680 to make a reservation or e-mail Courtney Beard at courtneybeard@museumofappalachia.org

For Adult and Senior Groups please contact Jennifer Johnsey by calling 865-494-7680 or e-mail jenniferjohnsey@museumofappalachia.org
