The Coquille Carousel Association was organized on March 28, 2013, for the purpose of building, operating and maintaining an artisan hand-crafted, wood-carved carousel in the City of Coquille. Our goal is: to promote Coquille as a destination for visitors to Oregon’s South Coast; to provide a classic attraction and entertainment experience for families and children in Coquille; to educate the public and children on the historical significance of forestry and the timber industry to the City of Coquille; and to preserve the knowledge and skills of woodcarving locally which will aid in the care and maintenance of the carousel.
The Association is a public non-profit organization that relies on the support of its members and volunteers to carry out its mission. You can get involved too!


The next Carousel carving class will be December 9, 10 & 11th in the afternoon from 1 to 4 pm.  Classes are at the Carousel workshop at 117 Central, in downtown Coquille. The 3 day class costs $30 which includes the precut blanks and use of our tools. The flowers that the class carves will be used on the Rounder Boards of the Carousel. This is a beginners carving class and is limited to 10 so please contact us to reserve a spot.
