Besides the obvious sheep shearing, they also have craft vendors on hand, militia reenactments, and various other activities spread throughout the day.

A couple years back we went to this festival. Provided the weather is nice, it is a fun time for the whole family. If you aren't familiar with Gore Place, it is the federal period home of early Massachusetts governor Christopher Gore. To find out more, the Boston Globe ran a recent story, too.
