Sheep Shearing Festival
Art and culture, Food and Drink, Nature and Wildlife
To contribute to the development of public, economic, cultural and civil activities of the Tatev region in Syunik, a sheep shearing festival is held near the renovated, historical Tatev Monastery. An art that has long been forgotten in Europe, Armenians take pride in their ability to shear a sheep’s wool by hand.
Visitors to this festival can also enjoy traditional Armenian cuisine and wines, dance to the live performances of folk music and even receive dance lessons!
