Eldon Turkey Festival

Submitted by on September 12, 2010 – 4:14 pmNo Comment

It’s silver anniversary time for the Turkey Festival in Eldon, Missouri. Set for September 25, 2010, it’s sponsored by the Eldon Area Chamber of Commerce.

Come watch festival favorites, those turkey lovebirds Sassy and Strutter, renew their vows (no, they’re not real turkeys but humans dressed like them…in wedding outfits, of course). That’s just part of the fun, Road Trips Foodies, as Eldon and Miller County celebrate their position as one of the nation’s top-producing areas for domestic turkeys (more than 2 million raised annually!).

Activities will include a one-hour parade, frozen turkey bowling, turkey-calling contest, turkey trot and gobble wobble 5K run and walk, kids’ activities, live music, fiddler contest, quilt show, turkey races and a bang-up demolition derby–plus more than 200 craft and food booths (turkey legs and strips will be available, naturally).

Exhibits and demonstrations by the Missouri Department of Conservation, the University of Missouri Extension and Runge Nature Center also will educate the public about domestic turkey production, safe hunting practices, turkey farming, the health benefits of turkey-food products and more.
