Cochran’s Crossing Fall Festival Raises Record Funds for Local Student Scholarships
Cochran’s Crossing Village Association (CCVA) raised a record amount of funds for its student scholarships and education fund at its annual fall festival held on Sunday, October 22, 2023 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at Shadowbend Park. The village raised $6,700 that will stay within the community and support our local students.

All proceeds from vendor booths spaces go toward CCVA’s fund. This year, CCVA had a record number of vendors at the festival, including local vendors selling handmade items. The annual festival is free to attend and the entire community is welcome.
Food vendors included Abundant Harvest Kitchen’s food truck, through which every meal purchased feeds two families and provides assistance to a Veteran. Inviting the food truck to participate is another way that CCVA’s festival gives back to the community.
The event was full of family-friendly activities, including: Kroger’s Chef Junior cooking class for kids, strolling entertainment, a petting zoo, axe throwing for ages 12 and up, face painters, bounce houses, a rock wall, carnival games, a trackless train, fall photo ops, vendors, visits with public safety personnel, and more. Additionally, CCVA’s Halloween Decoration Contest winners were announced at the festival.
The festival was sponsored by Cochran Crossing Village Association, Kroger, and Hello Woodlands.
