Texas: North Texas Irish Fest, Dallas

For over 30 years the NTIF has been held in Fair Park, Dallas on the first weekend in March.

March 2 -4, 2018
Fair Park, Dallas, Texas

When was the festival started?

The North Texas Irish Festival started life as the First Texas Ceili held on March 5, 1983, at Nick Farrelly’s Lounge on Oak Lawn (now Pappadeaux Seafood). In 1984 the SCMA was formed and moved the North Texas Irish Festival to the Cultural Arts building in Fair Park. We have expanded and move into various other buildings in the park since then.

We settled in our present location in 2001 and are now the second largest event to be held in Fair Park. (The State Fair claims to be larger, but the Irish exaggerate a lot!)

What hours are you open?

The festival will be open during the following hours: (subject to change)

  • Friday evening from 6:00 pm till 11:00 pm
  • Saturday from  10:30 am till 11:30 pm
  • Sunday from 11:30 am till 7:30 pm

Ticket sales will end approximately one hour prior to the gates closing. Alcohol sales will end approximately 30 minutes prior to the end of the festival.

Please note. These are the times that the gates will close for the night. Food & beverage sales, vendors and most music performances close somewhat earlier.

SAFF – Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival 2017 with Sheep Incognito

SAFF 2017 With Sheep Incognito In The House

The Southeastern Animal Fiber Festival (SAFF) 2017 will be better than ever! Lots of new workshops are there, new fiber products, new sheep, and of course, the newest Sheep Incognito Art by Conni Togel!

SAFF is on my top five list of best Fiber Festivals in the US – the location, the time of year when the leaves are turning up in the Smoky Mountains, and the warm, fuzzy feel of Fiber to make beautiful, cozy things with, combines into a beautiful event for the entire family.
With all the workshops and classes being offered, the new cleaner and lighter venue, and more vendors, this is probably the Southeast’s best place to be that weekend – whether you are a knitter or knot…

We will have new ornaments, mugs,Sheep Incognito 2018 Calendars, and more of the whacky, cute, sweet Sheep Incognito flock in the form of original paintings, prints, and canvas reproductions.

Don’t forget to go have dinner at the awesome Thai restaurant right across the interstate – best thai food I’ve had anywhere, really – and we travel a LOT:

Tamarind Thai Cuisine 

Traditional dishes from Thailand, plus Japanese sushi, served in a casual eatery with Asian art.
Address330 Rockwood Rd #112, Arden, NC 28704


You might need to make reservations, especially on Saturday evening – it is usually packed!
We look forward to welcoming you back to the Sheep Incognito booth at SAFF!

Neptune Festival 2017

Sheep Incognito will be baaack at the Virginia Beach Neptune Festival in 2017

It’s been a while – and the flock of Sheep Incognito are excited to be back at the beach!

Last year we could not make it to the Neptune Festival in Virginia Beach – something about a schedule conflict or a late application.

But, because it really is one of our more favored shows, this year we got on board early, and even managed to get the same spot on the corner of 27th that we had in previous years.
Look for us in Booth #2701C

This year, we’ll have all sorts of new sheepishness in tow – come visit us again, for the final blast of Summer 2017 at the Beach!

42nd Fine Arts & Crafts Festival Estes Park 2017, Colorado

42nd Fine Arts & Crafts Festival Estes Park 2017, Colorado – With Sheep Incognito in Attendance


I am so excited to be baaaahck in Colorado with my Sheep Incognito! This is where it all started, in my garage in Colorado Springs, about 3 hours from Estes Park where this gem of an art festival takes place in September, 2017. Primetime for bugling elk, colder weather, beautiful yellow aspen trees, and for being in my favorite place of all: Colorado.

Come visit me in the booth, so I can tell you what makes this place on earth so special. If we’ve met at other shows, we might have had that conversation already – so come see what I was talking about then!

If you want to spend some extra time in the Rockies, come a week earlier: we will be at the beautiful, fun, and very cool Scotfest/ Longs Peak Highland Festival in Estes Park.
Nothing quite compares to it – traditional kilts, baaaagpipes, clans, irish wolfhounds, scottish highland games, and some traditional celtic music, combined with my sheep art, and so many other things, in a truly magical setting among the mountains that I love.
Yep – you want to be there.

Come introduce yourself, and we’ll tell you where to get the best Thai/Nepalese food, which places in the Rocky Mountain National Park are best to visit, and how to avoid getting trampled by a moose or a rutting elk.
