The first Delta County Cotton Harvest Festival was held in 2016 in a cooperative effort between the Delta County Chamber of Commerce and Delta County Economic Development Corporation. The successful event delivered an entire day and evening with carnival rides, dunking booth, 5K, health fair, cotton auction, LiSher Dancers, over 60 vendors including festival foods from funnel cakes to hamburgers to cotton candy, crafts, raffles, kids games, cotton ginning demostrations, live musical performances with Josh Ward headlining to a crowd of fans dancing, being entertained, and having fun. 
In 2017 DCEDC and the Chamber entered into an agreement to form a separate entity, Cotton Harvest Festival Committee, to plan this year's event with both parties benefitting from the proceeds.
