The 37th Annual Mighty Moo Festival Brochure is now available below. The brochure is also available for download here.
June 11-14, 2014
The Mighty Moo Festival is held each Father’s Day weekend in June.
Over the past 37 years, this event has provided a reunion opportunity for crewmembers of the USS Cowpens CVL25 who served in WWII and those from the USS Cowpens CG63, which is currently serving in our US Navy’s fleet. Each year these veterans and their family’s return to our town to celebrate their history and service to our country. Today, the festival is a four-day event that boasts a variety of fun-filled events and patriotic support!
Join us as we celebrate our history, and honor the veterans of not only our two USS Cowpens vessels, but all veterans of the United States military.
