What A Hoot! Coxsackie, NY. A cartoonish owl perched on a branch.

They have arrived! Our fundraiser mugs for What a Hoot! 2020 are now available for $10 each. Proceeds from the sale of our new mugs will go toward operational costs for the 2020 festival. We will be making these available at the Village Office, Barbara's Country Treasures on 9W in Coxsackie, and from any What a Hoot! committee member. They will also be available at the Coxsackie Farmer's Market on the second Wednesday of every month this summer, hopefully starting in June. We thank you for your support!

Our selection reception was held on January 26, 2020, and was a great success. We would like to thank The Friends of the Library for the delicious owl themed treats, the Reed Street Bottle Shop for some delicious wine, and The National Bank of Coxsackie for providing a great venue for the event. We have 41 owls to be painted this year, and all of the sponsors have made their selections. We look forward to seeing all of the completed owls for Memorial Day weekend!

The Owl and the Chickadee, created by Sharon Lalor Askew, was our single owl for 2019, and was raffled off in December 2019 to raise funds for the 2020 What a Hoot! Festival.
