Live Demonstrations of Barrel-making by Real Coopers! 

S​ince 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.
$5 Raffle Tickets for Barrels are available at each entrance and at the Cooper Contest booth!

Live Blacksmith Demonstrations!

Blacksmith David Wilkins demonstrates the art of blacksmithing barrel hoops the old fashioned way!
