The 27th annual Dixon Lambtown Festival will offer food, fun and fascinating competitions the entire family can enjoy on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6.

The festival will be at the Dixon May Fairgrounds, 655 S. First St. in Dixon. Activities run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day.

Food vendors will feature a variety of lamb dishes, as well as traditional carnival food. Lamb ribs, lamb burger sliders, barbecued pulled lamb sandwiches, lamb kabobs, lamb rice bowls, and lamb lumpia are just some of the varieties to be offered.

Expert and amateur chefs will compete in the annual BBQ Lamb Cook-off on Saturday. There grills will be lighted at 10 a.m. and judging will take place between 2 and 4 p.m.

Kids’ activities will include bounce houses, rock climbing and a bungee swing, as well as face painting, a petting zoo and pony rides.

Professional sheepdog trials begin with qualifying rounds Saturday and the finals on Sunday.

Antique agricultural engines will be on hand huffing and puffing, whistling and spinning their wheels. Another type of spinning wheels — the kind that turn wool into yarn — also will be showcased at a “Sheep to Shawl” contest Saturday in which teams turn raw wool into yarn, dye it and knit a complete shawl in one day.

A Fiber Fair will include judging of fleece and processed fiber, much of which will be offered for sale. Wool and mohair will be judged on Saturday; fine fibers like cashmere, alpaca and angora will be judged Sunday.

A sheep shearing competition on Saturday will include both professional and novice competitors.

Admission is $3 general, $1 for children 6-13 and free for children 5 and under. For more information, visit www.lambtown.org.
