Growing strong since 2013!

The history behind the Barrel Festival:
In 2013, the Town of Coopertown decided to host its first annual Barrel Festival to not only revive the sense of community within the town, but also create awareness of its heritage in the cooperage industry (barrel making) and the present need to raise funds to better the community.

Organized by the Coopertown Community Development Committee (which meets monthly on the 2nd Tuesday at City Hall), the group was excited to boast 180 vendors and over 3,000 people at their first event! With the success of the first festival, there arose continuous talk and eagerness by town residents to relive the event, immediately taking on the next annual Coopertown Barrel Festival.

Don't miss out on a wealth of vendor booths, an abundance of food, live music with local talent, a Kid's Zone with inflatables and ongoing games, raffles, historical booths and live demonstrations from the cooperage industry, living history exhibits, tractors, corn hole, checkers, barrel races, a bung toss and the "Cooper of the Year" Contest!  This is the largest, most positive thing to ever to hit Coopertown! 

Community volunteers are welcome and much needed!
