South of the 'Pearl' River along the Leake - Scott County line is the Town of Walnut Grove, a place where you are always welcome! After 35 years of the festival 'Walnut Grove Day', the Town paused for a year, reorganized, and in 2014 created the new community festival "South of the River ROUX." Our ROUX is our MIXTURE of FUN, FOOD, and MUSIC! Our crowd has doubled each year of the new festival with over 3000 attending in 2015.
The ROUX is held the third weekend of September annually. This 2016 ROUX begins on Friday evening September 16th and concludes late Saturday afternoon September 17th.
The ROUX includes the
- Mississippi Power 5k Run - Walk
- Kids Fun Zone & Monster Truck Ride
- Car, Truck, & Motorcycle Show
- Entertainment variety
- Chainsaw Carving,
- Arts, Crafts, Good Food, & More.
Join the folks "South of the River" for their mix of food, fun, and music in Downtown Walnut Grove.
The ROUX is made possible by the generosity
of the sponsors (on right) and the countless volunteers.
We hope you show your support for our sponsors because they support our community through events like this.
