Situated on 48 acres of pristine coastal farmland, Coggeshall Farm is a living history museum reflecting the lives of tenant farmers in the late 1700s.
During the festival, interpreters dressed in 18th-century clothing will mingle with visitors as they explore the historic farmhouse and outbuildings.
Observe craft demonstrations, purchase handcrafted items and natural fibers, and watch a master sheep shearer at work on Coggeshall’s own Gulf Coast Natives. Old-fashioned games, kids’ crafts, dance performances, acoustic music and great local food complete the scene.
Last year's Coggeshall Cook-Off produced some inspiring desserts. This year's theme is rice pudding! A registration fee of $5 cash must be paid upon arrival at the Festival (in addition to ticket price). All registration fees will go toward cash prizes awarded to the winners.
We will offer prizes in three categories: Ages 12 and Under, Ages 13 to 17, and Ages 18 and up. Contestants must present their Cook Off item at the registration desk by 2 pm on Saturday, May 20. Registration fees in each category will determine the size of the cash prize in each category. Winners will be announced at 3 pm on Saturday, May 20.
For more information on the Coggeshall Cook-Off, Email Eleanor Langham.
