Step out of your shell and into some fun at the Great American Cooter Festival in the historic city of Inverness. There will be crafts, fine art, entertainment, children’s activities, contests, pageants, Cooter (turtle) races, barbecue cook-off contest and much more.
This year, the Citrus County Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce that it is continuing its partnership with the City of Inverness to bring you the biggest and best Cooter Festival to date. The event is still in its planning stages and contact information is being accepted for people who would like to participate. The event needs crafters, fine artists, food vendors, entertainment, sponsors and more. Don’t forget Cooter Idol and the Miss Cooter pageant for Citrus County residents; pre-registration is encouraged for those events and applications can be found on the festival website.
