Live Demonstrations of Barrel-making by Real Coopers! 

Raffle Tickets for Barrels are available at each entrance and at the Cooper Contest booth!

​​Since 2016, Speyside Cooperage has allowed the Barrel Festival to borrow two of their Coopers for a day. 

These gentlemen demonstrate the assemblage of several barrels throughout the day of the Festival (be sure to check the schedule!). 

You can even purchase your very own hand-made barrel (while they last!) the day of the Festival.

NEW IN 2018!
Live Demonstrations of Barrel Hoop-making by a Real Blacksmith!

Blacksmith David Wilkins will be demonstrating the art of blacksmithing barrel hoops the old fashioned way!
