This festival is significant to Warwick and Worth County because Georgia law states that "Grits are recognized as the official prepared food of the State of Georgia." and Warwick as The Grits Capital of the World. The Food Channel Network filmed the National Grits Festival in 2004.
The famous Quaker Grits Breakfast begins at 7:30 a.m. in the Grits Station in Warwick. The day is filled with arts & crafts, an antique tractor show, a parade and the famous and unprecedented "Roll in the Quaker Instant Grits Event". What is it? You have to come and check out what it's like to roll around in a cattle trough full of cooked Quaker Instant Grits!
Fun for the whole family and it's FREE!
