About National Hollerin' Contest Day
When is National Hollerin' Contest Day? This holiday is celebrated on the third Saturday in June
Yell and scream today’s news at the top of your lungs. Whoop it up. It’s National Hollerin’ Contest Day. Today, your vice is going to be heard. 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!? It’s definitely something to bellow out to family and friends.
Perhaps the hardest part about participating in this activity is finding a good place to practice. You can’t just practice in your living room. The neighbors will think you’re yelling at the wife or kids. When you practice in the backyard the dog will begin to howl. It’s best to build a soundproof room in your basement. We recommend going to a canyon to get a little hollerin’ done. The echo will tell you just how good you are.
Did you know? There are different types of “hollers”. Make sure to learn them all.
Now, rev up the decibels on your vocal cords, and spend today hollerin’ as loud as you can.

- Practice hollering. Just don’t yell at your spouse or the kids.
