Got Milk?

If not, get it here…  it’s free and so is the ice cream


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 entertainment, pageants, contests (sack race, call-calling, ice cream eating, butter churning, etc.).  Don’t miss the Tractor and Vintage Engine Show, “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.
