About Our Event

Running of the Wools is a new event in downtown Washington that highlights the close relationship the city and region has had with the farming and sheep industry. We want to show our appreciation for our farmers and all they do for us!

Our Main Street Pavilion will feature agricultural exhibits, educational displays, a children’s area, and craft vendors. The day will also showcase our local downtown businesses with a breakfast crawl and kitchen clash, and will culminate with the Running of the Wools where our champion sheep will take on Main Street.
