Welcome to the Worm Gruntin’ Festival!

17th Annual Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin' Festival logoThe seventeenth annual Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin’ Festival was a wonderful event. 

The day began with our 5K Race and continued throughout the day and into the night with our worm gruntin’ demonstration and contest, bait casting and hula hoop contests, many outstanding arts and crafts vendors and live entertainment throughout the day. The streets of historic downtown Sopchoppy saw a huge crowd of visitors and the weather cooperated with a cool and sunny day full of fun. The event ended with our Worm Grunter’s Ball featuring the incomparable music of Wakulla Rising and Tom & the Cats.
