Sheep Shearing Day

April 06 - April 06
Sheep Shearing Day

Come join the Farmyard crew for Stone Mountain Park’s annual Sheep Shearing!

On April 6 from 12 - 1 p.m., a professional shearer will share a tradition that dates back 9,000 years and gives the sheep a haircut to keep them nice and cool throughout the summer and early fall. Learn interesting facts about the care of sheep and the many uses of wool.

Fun sheep facts:

  • One fleece from a sheep is enough wool to make a man’s suit.
  • It only takes our shearer about 2-5 minutes per sheep to shear their wool in one large piece.
