May 2022
  • Saturday May 7, 2022, from 11:30am-12:15pm, Constant Billy performs at The 36th annual Sheep to Shawl Festival! One of Salem’s most beloved events, it’s set at the historic Wool Mill at Willamette Heritage Center. This is a great, all-day FREE event from 10am-4pm with music, food, drink, desserts, vendors and a wide variety of Craft Demonstrations!

    First held in 1985, the Sheep to Shawl festival is a classic family event, offering the opportunity to experience the whole wonderful world of wool, from the shearing of animals—sheep, of course, but also alpacas, llamas, and other critters—to the production of beautiful lace at the hands of expert fiber artists.
