The 56th annual festival of all things corny includes a carnival, pee wee drag racing, water fights, miniature tractor pulls, a parade, and Midwestern treats like corn on the cob, pork chop sandwiches, and barbeque chicken.

 

Shrimp Festival, Delcambre, Louisiana, August 17 – 21, 2011

Looking for a little Cajun flavor? You’ll find it here, with all day “fais-do-do’s,” the crowning of the “Little Shrimp Queen,” the blessing of the shrimp boats, carnival rides, and of course, shrimp, shrimp, shrimp – boiled, fried, in sauce piquante….

 

Kingsland Catfish Festival, Kingsland, Georgia, September 3 – September 5, 2011

www.kingslandcatfishfestival.com

It doesn’t get any more regional than this: southern fried catfish with hush puppies and grits, boiled peanuts, and a parade starring Cecil the Catfish. Of course, you’ll also find more generic attractions like an antique car show, pony rides, a truck and tractor exhibit, a parade and live music.

 

Can’t make the festival, but still want your kids to know what real food’s all about? Check out Roadfood: The Coast-to-Coast Guide to 700 of the Best Barbecue Joints, Lobster Shacks, Ice Cream Parlors, Highway Diners, and Much, Much More by Jane and Michael Stern.
