The Mission of the Lambtown festival is to celebrate and educate on all things about lamb and promote sheep, lamb, wool and all things related, from fleece to chops, sheep to shawl, fiber to yarn and herd to champion and farm to festival, the focus is on education and enjoyment for all.
Lambtown Festival began in 1985 as an exhibit at the Dixon May Fair, with the goal of showcasing the proud sheep ranching heritage of Dixon and the surround communities. The festival draws its name from the fact that at one point, more lambs were born in Dixon than in any other city in the country, earning it the nickname of Lambtown USA.
Over the past three-and-a-half decades, Lambtown Festival followed a meandering path as it grew from that first exhibit to a downtown street fair to a festival that takes over the entire Dixon May Fairgrounds, and is now the largest sheep and wool event in California. Each year, thousands of people flock to Dixon to help serve our mission: "to celebrate all things sheep, lamb, and wool. We aim to promote these noble ruminants, from fleece to food, fiber to fabric, and farm to festival, while providing education and enjoyment for all."
