Since the early 1900's, the Cottage Grove Fire Department has held our Firemen's Festival on Father's Day weekend every year at Firemen's Park in Cottage Grove. The festival is both a way to bring our community together and a fundraiser for the fire department. The money raised is used to purchase lifesaving tools and equipment to help us keep our community safe. Recent purchases include a battery powered "Jaws of Life", a UTV & trailer (with help from a DNR grant), ice water rescue suits, chainsaws, and numerous hand tools.
Be sure to mark your calendars then come on down and enjoy a brat and cold beverage while you watch a ball game or check out our music line up. The kids will go crazy over the carnival rides and games. Click on this year's festival page to see what we're planning for this June.
