January 16, 2014

The fourteenth  annual Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin' Festival, a one-day outdoor event in the streets of historic downtown Sopchoppy, Florida, will be on Saturday, April 12, 2013. As always there will be live music and other entertainment, games for children and adults, the Worm Gruntin' Contest, the Wakulla County Horseshoe Championship, a Hula Hoop Contest and much more. Once again, we will crown the Worm Grunter's King and/or Queen and, in the evening, we will dance under the stars at the Worm Grunter's Ball. As we do every year, we are planning on new events and more advertising.
Last year’s festival was the best ever and there is every reason to expect that this year will be even better, attracting a record number of vendors and even more buyers, because we are planning an even better and more comprehensive publicity campaign. We have enjoyed a lot of press coverage and folks all over the world make plans well in advance to be here for the Festival. Through the years, most vendors have been very successful so most return year after year. You should have your booth here as well!
