Cookie Daze« Back to Events
Who doesn’t love cookies? Even though this events is designed mainly for kids, grown-ups love cookies too. And Ripon, with its long history of making delicious cookies, hosts a tasty Cookie Daze on Saturday, August 4th at Barlow Park.
Cookie Daze is a mostly free celebration for children with lots of contests, games, and of course, cookies! Cookie Daze celebrates July 11, 1992 – the day Ripon baked the biggest cookie the world had ever seen. Filled with 3.8 million chocolate chips and measuring 34 feet in diameter, “Ripon accomplished something no one had ever done before,” according to the Ripon Commonwealth Press. Cookie Daze draws crowds of families readied for the annual “cookie drop” – let the chips fall where they may!
Activities during the event, which runs from 10 am – 1:30 pm, include Cookie Decorating, a Fish Pond, Kookie Cookie BINGO, a Rocket Shop & Launch Pad, a Food & Beverage Tent, the Flame Thrower Hitting Machine, Face Painting and a Children’s Activity Tent, Inflatables to play on and in, and more!
While in Ripon, check out all the shops downtown, the campus of Ripon College, and nearby towns like Green Lake, Berlin, and more!
