There was dancing, singing, drinking, eating, smiling, ginning, spinning, running and auctioning and more happened at the 2016 Delta County Cotton Harvest Festival on the Square in Cooper. The event, hosted by the Delta County Chamber of Commerce and Economic Development Corporation made history with an estimated 1,000 people in attendance.

Headlining for the 2017 Delta County Cotton Harvest Festival will be Curtis Grimes. He will be joined by a newcomer to the Festival – Muscadine Bloodline with popular tunes like, “Dust on the bottle,” and welcoming back 2 Gun Justice and other local talents. Fun for the whole family, this year's carnival returns with even more thrill-seeking rides, and vendors have been contacted. Many have already reserved their spots.

La Pietra Woodfired Pizza and Tejano's Tex-Mex just opened their doors on South Side of the Square in Cooper.

Progress is a sign of the times for 2017. In Delta County many new businesses are starting to appear.

“The Delta County Economic Development Corporation is excited about the new year and opportunities to grow,” said Delta County EDC Chairman Dustin Hunter. “We welcome our new businesses that chose to invest in Delta County. New business is great for our small growing community. It gives the citizens of Delta County more opportunities to live, work and shop local.”
