It is my belief, that if everyone in the world took three minutes to truly stop, look, listen and actually feel the carousel figures, they will always find something they love. Most art is subjective depending on a single persons taste and appreciation. But a carousel offers a little something for everyone.

Grants Making a Difference!
In 2015, the Coquille Carousel Association received two grants, which helped them contract with HGE Architects to develop a site schematic, conceptual drawings, and a conceptual budget for the project. Principal Architect and Coquille native, Joe Slack led a community-based project to define the amenities, site characteristics, and spatial requirements needed for the project. In December 2013, Joe provided his final report which identified a 9,713 square foot building consisting of a carousel roundhouse, carving center, gift shop, community meeting and celebration room, and offices and restrooms.

Welcome to Our Website
A community carousel.

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!. Read More »
