Whigham Rattlesnake Roundup
Each year on the last Saturday in January, the Whigham Community Club sponsors the Annual Rattlesnake Roundup in Whigham, Georgia. The roundup is over 50 years old and attracts approximately 20,000 visitors each year. At the roundup, professional snake handlers demonstrate the milking of snake venom from an Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake. Other events include:
- Arts & Crafts
- Snake Handling Demonstrations by trained professionals
- Children's Activities
