We love a good party and our beautiful hometown is getting ready to throw a big one. Cooperstown Field Day is Saturday, October 4 from 12-9PM.
The Village of Cooperstown is blocking off Main Street from the traffic light to the library on the day of the event. Haven’t been to Cooperstown before? We have one traffic light. One. And also one library. So if you’re coming to town and need directions, just mention either of those landmarks to a local and they’ll get you there.
There will be live music featuring Iron Horse Bluegrass, a farmer’s market, pumpkins, the CNY Cornhole Tournament, activities for kids, and an arts walk. The event is FREE and family-friendly.
During the event, attendees 21+ can swing over by Pioneer Street for Nine Innings of Beer. For $20, you can sample Ommegang ales paired with delicious dishes from some of our favorite local restaurants.
