Lambtown USA From 9 am to 7 pm at the Dixon Fairgrounds in Dixon California. We have attended this event many times in the past, and always had a great time. If you're into knitting or crochet, you'll love it that much more. Some of our favorite things to do at the Lambstown festival include: watching the sheep to shawl competition (teams compete to sheer, spin, and weave a shall), the sheepdog trials, petting sheep, llamas, rabbits, and other fiber producing animals, and browsing through the vendor building. We've never taken any of the classes they offer there, but they look like fun. Maybe someday. . . In the past, it has been free to attend. This year one page on the Lambtown USA website says it's still free, but a $1.00 donation is recommended, another page says admission will cost $1.00 for adults, and it will be free for kids under 12 years old. I guess, take a buck with you, just in case.
