What all started as talk about how nice it would be to have something to bring the community of Corcoran together, has now become an event to look forward to at the end of summer! Corcoran Country Daze is a place where families can come for affordable and free entertainment; a softball tournament and city-wide festival to celebrate the country roots of the Corcoran area and unify the community.
The NW Area Jaycees (JC’s), then known as the Corcoran Area JC’s, brought the idea to the City of Corcoran in 2004. With their support and that of the Corcoran Police Department and many area businesses, Corcoran Country Daze was born and has become something to celebrate our great rural, yet suburban community. We’ve welcomed such acts to the big stage as, Chace Roberts, Jonah and the Whales and the Killer Hayseeds. Many other local bands have come to provide free music to the community.
Our food stands and vendors serve great food along with many other tasty treats and beverages. Walking down “Country Road” visitors see the many vendors, police/fire/rescue displays and kid’s activities that are part of the Family Day event Saturday. From the free rock climbing wall to the build-a-bird-house, from the moon bounce to the tractor displays – there’s something for everyone!
Other activities range from hay rides and trauma helicopter fly-ins to Wild West demonstrations and craft shows. The best part is, all proceeds go back to the surrounding communities through the many events the NW Area JC’s support, including hardship donations, children’s events, scholarships, food shelf donations etc.
Events including the Inflatable Toddler Zone, Face Painting, Pony Rides, Build-a-Bird Feeder, Rock Climbing Wall, Euro Bungee Jumper, Police, Fire and Rescue Exhibits, bands & more are all FREE because of Charitable Gambling. AND Free Fireworks – Tribute to our local veterans!
We hope you’ll come be a part of the fun and perhaps be inspired to get involved in some way!
