The Trailing of the Sheep Festival:  October 8-12

Long ago after the gold and silver bust, all that remained of the Sun Valley economy was its sheep industry. A century later this tradition of driving sheep from the winter pastures to the high country in summer with a retreat through the valley once again in mid-fall, continues.  Embark on an immersive weekend in western culture with sheep and the ranching families and traditions which make this event one of the most widely acclaimed cutlural events in the country.  From a fiber festival, to foodie offerings featuring famous Idaho lamb, to western story telling and the famous Trailing of the Sheep Parade where several thousand sheep march through the streets of Ketchum as they have each spring and fall since the 1800's, this is an event that is more relevant today than ever.  More:
