Event Details

Reportedly consuming more grits per capita than any other place in the world, the small town of St. George is the rightful home of the Worlds Grits Festival. Each year, the event hosts 40,000 people and features live music, arts and crafts vendors, carnival games, and of course, a grits eating contest. You won‘t want to miss the Quaker Instant Grits Contest, on Saturday for kids and Sunday for adults, where participants jump into a pool of grits and whoever wears the most hominy takes home a cash prize. World Grits Festival Headquarters, 110 S. Polar Ave., St. George. Friday & Saturday, 9am-9pm; Sunday, noon-4pm. Free. www.worldgritsfestival.com
