When : Third Saturday in June

National Hollerin' Contest Day is the perfect opportunity to yell and scream at the top of your lungs.

Spivey’s Corner, North Carolina has a population of about 50 people. But, on National Hollerin' Contest Day , an estimated 5,000-10,000 people come to enjoy the annual National Hollerin’ Contest. Can you imagine the honor of winning this contest!? Its definitely something to yell about.

Did you know? There are different types of "hollers".

Now, rev up the decibels on your vocal chords, and spend today hollerin'.

The Origin of Hollerin Contest Day:

People have been hollerin' about this day every year since its beginning in 1969.

We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation. However, there does appear to be some national recognition of this event.
