As the summer comes to an end, and the Cooperstown Dreams Park and the Cooperstown All-Star Village close for the season, the highlights of Cooperstown begin to change. With a shift in our visitor, the colors of Fall start to take over as a true visual attraction to our village.
Once Labor Day arrives, Cooperstown welcomes a series of events that have stood the test of time to become must see’s in our community. The kickoff event traditionally is The Farmers’ Museum Harvest Festival held at the museum, traditionally the second weekend of September. Following that event, a visitor to the area can take part in the many themed events at the Fly Creek Cider Mill, that carry throughout the entire season, including the Duck Derby, and the Big Squeeze.
As leaves start to fall off the trees, Cooperstown’s turns its eyes to the biggest weekend of the season, Columbus Day. Three large events take place this weekend, providing something for everyone, from the Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce’s own Cooptoberfest and Cooperstown on Tap event on Main Street, to The Farmers’ Museum Tractor Fest, to the Fly Creek Cider Mill’s signature event, Ciderfest. All three bring thousands to our community making Cooperstown a destination on this weeknd!
Fall events continue after Columbus Day at Brewery Ommegang, other local breweries, and is capped off with a village parade on Halloween.
