Frog Leg Festival – Fellsmere FL, January 2016

Guinness Book of World Records holder for the Largest Frog Leg Festival in the WORLD!

Fellsmere Frog Leg Festival

January 21st – 24th, 2016

In 1990 several members of the City of Fellsmere recreation committee were very concerned that there was no funding source available for the recreational needs of the children of Fellsmere. The Frog Leg Festival was a result of that concern.

The first festival was a brain child of a small group of local residents in Fellsmere who guessed that frog legs might just be unique enough to entice folks to the city, so they made plans to sell frog leg dinners. The first year, local frog giggers caught 400 lbs of frogs in the marshes surrounding Fellsmere. The group thought this would be enough for the entire festival. Some of the committee, not realizing the draw of this event and figuring only a small number of people would attend, helped set up the dinner operations and then went off to the movies, leaving a few helpers to serve up the entrée.
