About Cuero Turkeyfest

The Cuero Turkeyfest is a non-profit community run organization founded in 1973 as an annual small town celebration of area agricultural history. Its founding purpose was to create a vehicle for local civic organizations to raise money for their various endeavors. Turkeyfest is routinely able to give back to these organizations throughout the year by the generosity of its festival patrons, volunteers, and sponsors.

2022 Community investment


The Cuero Turkeyfest Association is comprised of citizens that share a common mission to give back to the community through directing this annual affair. All board members are unpaid volunteers that work countless hours to make sure that the Cuero Turkeyfest is planned, set up, orchestrated, and put away again each year, on time. If you happen to see one of them running around the festival grounds, and they have time to stop, be sure and give them a big high-five.
