Shepherds Fest (7th Annual)

09/23/2023 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Shepherd's Corner Ecology Center
987 N Waggoner Road

On September 23rd from 1:00 – 3:30 pm we are holding our 7th annual Shepherds Fest.

We invite you to come visit & enjoy some time at Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center. Take some time to walk our mediation trail & labyrinths. Meet some of Shepherd’s Corner friends and supporters such as Franklin County Soil & Water Conservation District and our beekeeper will be here to share knowledge about bees! Shepherd’s Corner friend Gail Maraman from Windy Crest Design will be on site to share her art! (Gail also leads wonderful programs here at Shepherd’s Corner). Diana Morse will also be joining us with a wool yarn spinning demonstration. Learn more ways that you can recycle!

Meet, greet, and feed our flock. Maggie, our llama, may even come to say, ‘Hi’! Explore our meditation trail and take a hayride around to see parts of Shepherd’s Corner you may not have seen before! Our back patio that overlooks the pastures, garden, and our smaller labyrinth is a great space to enjoy some delicious food if you would like to bring a picnic! Be sure to bring a water bottle to be filled at one of our water stations.

This event is free to the public! We are asking those who attend bring shelf stable foods to donate to local food pantries.

More information about this event will be added as the date gets closer!

We are raffling off a quilt that was created and donated by Sr. Andre Kravec. Participation in the raffle is not tax deductible and is limited to Ohio residents.
Raffle beings 9/12 and will end at Shepherds Fest on 09/23/2023.
