SAVE THE DATE! July 14 & 15, 2023
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 13 community members that are dedicated to hosting a jam packed, fun filled Community event for Forest City!
