National Hollerin' Contest -- June 16, Spivey's Corner, North Carolina

In honor of keeping the "almost-lost-art" of hollering alive, this sonorous soiree draws crowds in the thousands to Spivey's Corner, some 50 miles south of Raleigh. The men's Hollerin' Contest is the main act, but willful women and yelling youngsters can also compete for bragging rights and a dazzling trophy in the Ladies' Callin' and the Junior Hollerin' events. Attendees can also catch the conch shell blowing contest, or devour some down-home delights from an array of food vendors. General admission is free of charge.
