The Twenty-First Annual
Shoals Catfish Festival

July first  through fourth

All of Shoals turns out to welcome visitors
and celebrate the Fourth of July!

Ninety-two vendor booths are jammed packed every year with crafts, handmade or not, for some great shopping.

Of course, catfish is served up fresh and piping hot in the food court along with everything from bloomin’ onions to steak right off the grill.

 There is literally something for everyone, young, old and in between.
Sporting events and contests, cooking contest, fishing contest, music,
The Great Catfish Parade, Fireworks, and the Sunday evening

An absolutely beautiful and challenging course for a 5Krun!
