~ Walthall County Dairy Festival ~
June 2, 2018
The Dairy Fest has been described by out-of-town media as one of the best old-time festivals in existence. There’s no admission charge and all of the games and contests are free.
Year after year, everybody has fun at Tylertown's Dairy Festival, even the cows! The festival is free, as are all of festival activities, making it a real treat for families looking for a day of fun. Where else can you get FREE ICE CREAM and MILK? Come early before it's gone! See the event schedule for info on the entertainment, pageants, contests (sack race, call-calling, ice cream eating, butter churning, etc.). Don't miss the Tractor and Vintage Engine Show, Art and Heritage Expo, the “Cow Bag Nationals” Antique Car Show, Flower Show, and the International Turtle Races. The Rotary Club sponsors the turtle races and offers divisions for turtles of all sizes. FREE Turtle Race T-shirts are provided by the Kalencom Factory Outlet for the first 180 children registering racing turtles. Craft and vendor booths are stationed along the shady trail offering a variety of items for purchase. All of the food and refreshments are sold by local non-profits under tents near the stage area. Stay until 9pm for the Grand Finale – a lively Fireworks Display sponsored by Citizens Bank.
2018 will be the 8th year that the Kalencom Factory Outlet Store will generously donate t-shirts for the first 180 children registering turtles for the International Turtle Races!!!
NO DOGS OR PETS ARE ALLOWED ON THE PREMISES THE DAY OF THE FESTIVAL.
