Sheep Shearing Day at the Peter Wentz Farmstead

Saturday, April 20, 2024

Experience springtime on a colonial farm! Watch our farmers shear our sheep to get them ready for the warm weather. Then, follow the “wool to wardrobe” process as our living historians demonstrate spinning, weaving, and other textile crafts. Hear about all the various activities that went into running an 18th century farm as you tour the historic house. Check out the sights and smells of an open-hearth cooking demonstration in the Summer Kitchen. Stop by our demonstrators’ stalls to learn about important crafts like woodworking, basket-weaving, candle-dipping, and more. Kids will delight in a performance by Tuckers’ Tales Puppet Theatre. We can’t wait to see “ewe” there! All ages; free
