Merriwa’s Festival of the Fleeces

Held annually in the June long weekend.

Come to Merriwa and see the sheep dressed in Red Socks running the main street, watch the blade shearer as he shows his skills taking the fleece through to today’s shearer with his motor run blades. With rides, Art Show, games, team penning, Quilting display, dog high jumps, whip cracking, clowns, stalls and lots more to see, the day is set to entertain.
