Midwest Sheep and Wool Festivals

I’m in search of the best midwestern sheep, wool, and fiber festivals next year. I’m located in eastern Iowa, so the obvious choice would be the Iowa Sheep and Wool festival in Ames… but the weekend that it is scheduled on is (once again) not available in my schedule due to a trifecta of birthdays + Father’s Day. I’ve looked at others, but it can be hard to tell which ones are really worth the drive. What are your favorite gatherings in Iowa, Illinois, southern Wisconsin, and northeastern Missouri (I’m willing to drive as far as St. Louis) - even the far southeastern corner of Minnesota?

Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival is in September of each year. (September 7-10, 2017) If you go to their website, you can request a catalog. http://www.wisconsinsheepandwoolfestival.com/
