Great American Cooter Festival
Step out of your shell and into FUN at the Great American Cooter Festival at Liberty Park in historic downtown Inverness. You’ll enjoy an overflow of outdoor events steeped deep in down-home Southern entertainment.   

This event is SO BIG, the fun is spread out over the entire month of October.  It starts off with "warm up events", like the Cooterlicious Culinary Crawl, Cooter Queen Contests, Cooteriffic Cruise-In and a Cooterlicious Farmers Market throughout the month of October, all leading to the last full weekend of the month and the Great American Cooter Festival.  Take a look at some of the fun that awaits you this year.

Cooter Turtle Brings People from Far & Wide
It's no surprise attendance at the Great American Cooter Festival grows each year. Much of the growth is due to friends telling friends, but there is also curiosity about what a festival based on the Florida Cooter Turtle could be all about. 
In 2003, the first Great American Cooter Festival was held.  Considering the newness, much less title of the event, we were contacted by radio & television media to learn more about it..  One of our favorites has to be the Daly Show interview.

There's so much going on the schedule is in constant change, as more live entertainment and surprises are being added for your enjoyment.  For up to the minute event info, "friend" Sunny Cooter on Facebook or call 352-726-2611.
