54th Annual Opp Rattlesnake Rodeo
Date(s): 4/12/2014, 4/13/2014
Each year this annual event brings thousands of people to Opp and Covington County to enjoy arts & crafts, unique cuisine, children’s activities and live entertainment while getting up close and personal with rattlesnakes. Saturday’s festivities will include the famous snake races; plus, throughout the weekend, our skilled snake handlers will educate the public on snake safety.
We are very excited to have an outstanding musical entertainment line-up. On Saturday, April 12th, the headliner will be country singer Easton Corbin and on Sunday, April 13th, we are blessed to have Christian groups Building 429, Hawk Nelson, and Family Force 5. This year’s entertainment line-up will be sure to draw people from all generations to our community.
The Rattlesnake Rodeo began in Opp, Alabama in 1960, and fifty four years later rattlesnakes are still the “star” attraction. Furthermore, the Rodeo has grown to become a family-friendly festival that draws over 25,000 people to Opp, Alabama. The economic impact from Opp Rattlesnake Rodeo in Opp, Covington County, and Southeast Alabama continues to be prosperous.
