If you joined us for the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival trip, boy, will you love Rhinebeck. Generally, referred to by one name only — kinda like Cher. Rhinebeck is the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival. This is the mother of all sheep and wool festivals, in my opinion. Rhinebeck is in the beautiful Hudson River Valley, between New York City and Albany. It occurs during prime leaf-peeping season. There are lots of sheep. There is fleece for sale. There is wool. There are workshops. Go to the website to see what’s going on.
Just like Maryland Sheep & Wool, we’ll be leaving from the Narberth Boro Hall Parking Lot, 100 Conway Avenue, Narberth. (Entrance to the parking lot is off Haverford Avenue, just past Conway, but before the basketball courts.) Our luxury motorcoach will have a bathroom, plenty of storage and a DVD player.
Provided by Ewe and I will be coffee and bagels in the morning and water and snacks in the afternoon. We will provide a ticket into the fairgrounds.
Here’s the bad news — the bus leaves at 6:30 a.m. We should be in Rhinebeck by about 10 a.m. The fairgrounds open at 9 a.m. We’ll be leaving Rhinebeck around 4 p.m., returning to Narberth around 7:30 p.m.
Wear comfortable walking shoes. Be prepared for the weather.
Parking behind Boro Hall is free all day.
There are 44 seats on the bus. Helen will be joining me as your guide to the Festival. Tickets will be only available in advance. No tickets will be sold for the bus, day of the event.
Cost: $70 per person.
