The Sopchoppy Worm Grunting Festival
April 11, 2015
This year’s festival is on Saturday, April 11th.
The day begins at 7:30 AM with registration for the 5K race. The race begins at 8:30 AM and we expect even more runners than last year as this race becomes a regular event and has a course through scenic city and country. At 9 A.M. over 90 vendors of arts, crafts, and food will open for business with our first live music performance of the day. At 10 AM the colorful worm grunting demonstration by a professional bait harvester, our own Gary Revell, and past festival King. The worms go deep in the ground as the day warms up so if you want to see Gary or have your kids compete in the Worm Grunting contest (cash prizes) which follows the demonstration, you have to be here in the morning. This will also offer you the best choice of sizes and colors of shirts. To pre register for the race follow this link
