Masham Sheep Fair

Ten Years of Excellence

The sheep fair in Masham was re-introduced to the town 10 years ago and has gone from strength to strength. During the last weekend in September hundreds of sheep take over the town square. The event includes competitions sheep racing, displays of many different breeds and on the Sunday there is a rare breed sheep sale.

The Sheepfair has proved a major tourist attraction for Masham and one at which the two local breweries Theakstons (of Old Peculier Fame) and Blacksheep (with its Riggwelter - very strong beer)being heavily promoted over the weekend.
