Rattlesnake Roundup

Rent the Whigham Community Club for your next event!

Greetings Friends, Vendors & Visitors

We never imagined at the end of January 2020, life would change, and cancel festivals. The COVID-19 virus put all activities on hold and required additional changes for social gatherings. Therefore, the Whigham Community Club took this time to make exciting and creative changes for the Whigham Rattlesnake Roundup 2022.

We are changing the date! The Whigham Rattlesnake roundup for 2022 will be held on March 5, 2022, at the Rattlesnake Roundup Grounds, Whigham, Georgia. 

All vendors are encouraged to participate in a responsible way. The event is held outside. There will be food, entertainment, arts and craft vendors, demonstrations, and music. We are hoping to have a record number of vendors. Vendor registration forms are attached or you can find more information on our Facebook.

Our goal is to provide a safe family fun event. We hold the event each year as a fundraiser for local needs, primarily our youth. Your success as a vendor or fun time at the Rattlesnake roundup provides the programs for our community. We thank you for your participation and look forward to seeing you in March.

Educational Reptile Program

We are not Catching the Snakes!

Rattlesnakes will be on display and educational programs will be provided by Jason Clark, Southeastern Reptile Rescue. We are teaming up! The Whigham Community Club, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Quail Forever, and Southeastern Reptile Rescue are teaming up to bring the BEST Rattlesnake display and educational environmental information ever provided at the festival.

Helping Our Community

The WCC has been instrumental in providing donations for Whigham Scout Troop 383 while providing 28 Eagles Scouts with $500 scholarships, providing the land for the Scout Club House, paying for the Scout House utilities and providing assistance for other needs when requested. 

The club donates to the Whigham School for club events as well as its sporting teams.  The club provided financial assistance for the batting cage, the press box, uniforms and other needs as requested.  

The club also has helped with clubs at the school by providing assistance for such trips as the Georgia Studies Tour and Beta Club trips to New York.  The club also donates to the FFA/4H livestock shows and provides monetary assistance to those that have suffered from home fires.
