Whidbey Island Fair 2016
The Whidbey Island Fair is fast approaching. Mark your calendars for
Thursday, August 4 - Sunday, August 7th.
For those of you interested in exhibiting your sheep or fleece/fiber at the fair this year, online registration is now open and will be ending on Friday, July 15 at 5pm. After that time you will be able to register, but you WILL NOT be eligible for premium points. Please remember to also mail in your registration form with your stall fees.
Sheep will have their vet check on Tuesday night, August 2nd at 7:30pm. Vet check will be done again this year by Dr. Sandi Farris of Coupeville. Dr Farris volunteers her time to do this for the fair. We are extremely grateful for all of the wonderful veterinarians on Whidbey Island who along with Dr. Farris donate their time and talents to help put on the fair!

Fleece and exotic fiber can be dropped off in the Malone Building anytime before noon on Wednesday, August 3rd. If you have a scheduling conflict, please contact me and we can arrange another time.
The Open Class Sheep Show will be held on Friday morning at 10am, August 5th in the sheep barn. Judging of our fleece and exotic fibers will take place after lunch at 1pm in the center of the Malone Building. Our judge this year will be Amy Wolf. Amy is a fabulous judge who is well versed in both meat and fiber sheep as well as wool and exotic fibers. Amy judges at sheep and fiber shows up and down the West Coast. We are thrilled to have her back with us again this year.
