Isn't the Black Sheep Gathering in Oregon (Eugene, I am pretty sure) in June? It's a major and should be on your list. And late in the season...Taos Wool Festival in Taos, NM the first weekend in October (10/4 and 10/5 this year). Thanks!

Good catch, Meredith! I've added Black Sheep Gathering to the list. In a few months I'll post a list of festivals taking place in the fall and I'll be sure to include the Taos Wool festival. Thanks!
