Fáilte!! Welcome to Boorowa, a part of the beautiful Hilltops Region. After a two year hiatus, join us in celebrating the iconic Irish Woolfest on the October Long Weekend, specifically from Friday 30 September to Sunday 2 October 2022. The highly anticipated ‘Running of the Sheep’ and Street Parade are the main attractions of the Irish Woolfest weekend and will begin at 12 noon on Sunday 2 October. In addition to the renowned ‘Running of the Sheep’, you will discover: arts and cultural highlights, wood chopping, live music, food stalls, Celtic musical performances and working dog demonstrations...just to name a few! When visiting the #HilltopsRegion in October you will be amazed by the colours of spring that highlight the natural beauty of our landscape. A major highlight is the paddocks of golden canola scattered throughout our region. Another attraction is the Merino wool which Boorowa is so famous for. During your visit you will see how the rich wool is grown and becomes the warm and cosy garment you love on a crisp spring night. We are committed to providing an unforgettable festival that has something for everyone with non-stop activities and entertainment. Thank you to our wonderful community and valued visitors, we cannot wait to join in on the craic with you!

See you in Boorowa! The Boorowa Irish Woolfest Committee Disclaimer: The Boorowa Irish Woolfest Committee reserves the right to change the program at any time without notice.
