October 5 - 9, 2016

Gather, present and preserve history and cultures of sheepherding
in Idaho and the West.

"Celebrating Generations" continues in 2016 as we follow families into today’s hardworking second and third generations.  We also need ranching family members to help lead the sheep in Sunday's parade.  Contact us to learn more or to participate!

The sheep are the center of the Festival. But, the sheep knit together a cultural tapestry of concerts, workshops, presentations, personalities, dogs and horses.
