Boorowa Irish Woolfest

Festivals and Celebrations

6 Oct 2024 Annual Event

Boorowa is world-renowned for its fine Merino wool. Creating a Wool Week event in the late 1990s seemed like a great way to showcase the beautiful wool from the region.

A whole week was dedicated to this event with wool shows, wool workshops, shearing displays, and much more all around the town.

After a couple of years, it was decided that to make it a truly spectacular event the community would condense it to a one-day festival when the street would be closed to traffic. This gave it more impact with all festivities located up and down the main street.

Thereby was born the Woolfest.

A great day out for all the family, lots of food and entertainment.
