The Jackie Howe Festival will become an iconic signature event celebrating the sheep and wool industry at the Jondaryan Woolshed. The festival recreates life in a woolshed in the 1890s. Over three days people live the lives of those pioneers, experiencing living and breathing life as an Aussie, and understanding what made our culture and grew our spirit as a nation.
