Celebrating Skipton’s rich history in sheep and wool farming.

The Skipton Spring Festival is a part of their flood recovery initiative and will be held on the one-year anniversary of the flood. Come along for a fantastic family day out and support this small town!

They will also unveil their newest artwork – Blade Shearer; a monument to local and internationally recognised blade shearer Ben Wilkie.

Join them for live blade shearing (using Ben Wilkie’s original shears) and wool classing demonstration.

They will have a fantastic range of country market stalls showcasing local and artisan products, as well as informative stalls with information about the sheep and wool trade and how it has sustained the town over generations.

There will be live music from Possums on the Porch playing in the rotunda in the main street, and Rock ‘n Roll Stroll playing in the Town Hall.

Refreshments will be available from several food vendors situated throughout the township, the Skipton Progress Association and the Town Hall.

Kids Activities are available with an exhibition of local children’s artwork in the Town Hall and colouring and crafts available in the supper room. Head on over the bridge to Stewart Park for more fun and games by the Historical Society.
