Mark your Calendar for Puckerbrush Days Fun this Summer

JULY 15 and 16, 2022
Downtown Forest City

Puckerbrush Days is a two day annual community celebration in July that offers over 30 activities for community members and visitors. The Puckerbrush Days parade, fireworks, battle of the businesses, bouncy house, craft show and magic show, bags tournament, beer garden and live music are just a few of the exciting activities offered during the event this  year.

The history behind the unique name of the celebration is an unusual one. Early on, the town was surrounded by a dense bush called Puckerbrush. The bush had a berry on it and when eaten, it would make you pucker. Although the bush is long gone from Forest City, the name stands as a symbol of the city’s history.

We have a committee of 14 community members that are dedicated to hosting a jam packed, fun filled Community event for Forest City! If you have interest in volunteering during Puckerbrush Days, contact our office at 641-585-2092.
