Come out for the annual Sheepshearing Festival at Gore Place. This popular tradition, held every year since 1988, features a wide range of activities that take you back to the days of village life. The talented border collies of Wellscroft Farm will show off their herding abilities, and a professional will demonstrate the lost art of handshearing a sheep. In addition to the sheep-centric activities there will also be crafters demonstrating historic skills like spinning, weaving and blacksmithing, historic battle re-enactors and live music. Take home a souvenir of the day from the crafts fair and keep yourself nourished throughout the day with the variety of food vendors. Bring the whole family, as children ages 12 and younger are admitted free to this festive and popular event. Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Waltham native and independent scholar Rob Velella has made it his stated goal to “…do nothing less than bring 19th-century writers back from the dead.” Using first-person, in-character interpretation, Rob portrays the young Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Nathaniel Hawthorne and, of course, Edgar A. Poe.
With its lofty ceiling, marble floors and beautiful decor, the Great Hall of the 1806 Gore mansion will provide the perfect setting for these spooky tales. What better way to spend a winter’s eve?
This event is recommended for those ages 16 and older.
