psssssst! Meet me in the Alpaca Barn!
~ Alpacas at the Gathering ~
Next year's show will be June 23-25, 2023
Linn County Expo Center in
Alpacas will again join the sheep and goats at The Black Sheep Gathering at the Linn County Fairgrounds in Albany, Oregon. If you are not familiar with BSG, it is one of the premier fiber events in the country. Visitors come from all over North America, taking classes, entering their wool and mohair in the fleece show, showing sheep and goats, and packing the halls to buy fleece, roving, yarn, and animals. Knitters, hand-spinners, felters, and weavers search for raw material for their next projects, and everyone enjoys the animals, fiber demonstrations and competitions, and colorful displays.
This 3-day event is scheduled for June 23-25, 2023, Friday afternoon through Sunday. Set-up is Thursday afternoon and Friday morning 7am-9am. AAWO proudly hosts the alpacas at BSG. More details to come as the show approaches.
We invite you to come join us on this adventure!
