Sheep Wool Festival In den Dorfwiesen, 71720 Oberstenfeld-Gronau
Saturday, 03.09.2022, 11–18 Uhr Sunday, 04.09.2022, 11–18 Uhr A colorful festival "around the sheep" and its wool. The raw material of sheep's wool, has been given too little attention in recent years. In our region there are thousands of sheep and this not only on the Alb, but also in the Bottwartal and in the Loewenstein mountains. These animals work tirelessly day and night to preserve our cultural landscape. They produce meat, milk and wool. In order to give the sheep wool festival visitors insight and information concerning sheep farming, there will be a lot on offer this weekend. Different breeds of sheep will be presented. A colorful array of over 100 market stalls, staffed by sheep farmers and artisans offers interesting and informative. Old and new handicrafts are shown, e.g. spinning, weaving, felting etc. and invite to look and participate. The physical well-being is well taken care of: with lamb dishes and wine from the Bottwartal. Not only are we right at home at this event with our felt bags and accessories - we love the unique environment of the market and look forward to this event all year.
