                                             Purpose:

 

The Shepherds' Extravaganza is a yearly sheep, wool and craft show and sale held at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup, Washington during the Puyallup Spring Fair.

The Extravaganza is sponsored by Western Washington Sheep & Fleece Shows, Inc. The organization's purpose is to promote both the sheep and wool industries.

Each year, The Shepherds' Extravaganza showcases local and national sheep breeders, woolgrowers and craft vendors. The show will feature many educational workshops, a wool show and sale, a fiber arts and skein competition, plus a variety of sheep breeds on display for consignment and for the spectators' enjoyment.

The organization also supports charitable and educational programs including: 

- Encouraging and advancing the breeding of sheep for wool, meat, milk and research purposes.

- Improving sheep through selective breeding.

- Assisting members and others with information pertaining to sheep breeding, general flock management, and the shearing and handling of fleeces.

- Encouraging gatherings to acquaint shepherds, spinners, weavers and others with one another and to educate them further concerning sheep and fleeces including fiber from other animals.

- Organizing and encouraging other activities to further the purposes of the organization.
