The Trailing of the Sheep Festival in Idaho has received another feather in its cap – it was selected as one of the top 10 Best Fall Festivals in the 2023 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards.

The Trailing of the Sheep Festival was initially selected as one of 20 Best Fall Festival nominees by a panel of travel experts, alongside the USA TODAY editors, and then garnered enough votes by readers to come in as fifth on the list of award winners.

“We are thrilled that the Trailing of the Sheep Festival has secured yet another prestigious award, and we are excited to showcase our 27th annual event in just two weeks,” said Laura Musbach Drake, Trailing of the Sheep Festival’s Executive Director.
