Lambsdown Park Festival 2016 May 24 2016
Bring the family on June 18th to 142 Franktown Rd in Carleton Place for a fun filled day.
This is a non-gated event and is FREE to enter the grounds and FREE parking. Demonstrations are FREE to view.
Food and merchandise vendors will be on site offering items for sale.
This year the Real Wool Shop is supporting Knitted Knockers of Canada! There will be a booth setup next to the store and the first 20 participants receive yarn and pattern free. Please bring a chair and your 4.5 dp needles and let's knit some knockers in public!
The Carleton Place (BIA) isn’t sheepish about letting people know that Carleton Place is the largest distribution centre for lamb’s wool in Canada!
Food stands, vendor displays, sidewalk sale, petting zoo, pony rides, spinning and weaving for the fibre enthusiast, and of course, sheep shearing demos and sheep dog demos through out the day.
Every year it gets bigger and better.
Something for all ages to enjoy.
With wool being the fibre on which the festival is centred, the day will feature hands-on demonstrations of sheep herding involving working sheep dogs, sheep shearing and the spinning of wool. As well, in keeping with the festival theme, tours will be conducted of the Wool Growers facilities. The Lambs Down Park Festival will be an opportunity for us to showcase some of the dynamics of Canada’s sheep and wool industry.
Other aspects of Carleton Place’s rich heritage will be on display at the festival. For instance, since the Wool Growers occupy what was originally the round house and machine shops for the Canadian Pacific Railway, one display will track Carleton Place’s railway past.
There will be local fresh produce, petting zoo and pony rides, kids activities and more. Spectators can relax at a picnic table enjoy a bite to eat and a drink from great local vendors.
You will find unique demonstrators and displays with all kinds of interactive activities for the young and old to participate.
