Irish Woolfest - Boorowa

Dates

• Sunday 04 October 2015

About

*** Latest event details are yet to be confirmed ***

The Running of the Sheep at Boorowa Hotel's Irish Woolfest has been likened to the Running of the Bulls in Pamplona. It is not to be compared to the danger of the bulls as these sheep are cute and cuddly but certainly as visually exciting. Visitors love the sheepdog component when they see the trusty kelpies leaping on and off the sheep's backs as they race down the street guided by Farmer Ashley on his four wheel motorbike.

A spiritual thanksgiving for the fine wool of the district follows an old-style ritual shearing for the annual Blessing of the Fleece. Sheep events display the sheep in all their glory.

Irish bands and dancers create the Irish spirit whilst top Irish performers appear on the main stage.
