81st Annual King Turkey Day Festival - - Postponed
After much consideration and discussion, the King Turkey Day board has decided to postpone this year’s festival due to the ongoing situation with the Covid-19 pandemic. While we understand that not having the festival is frustrating to a community that would love a sense of normalcy, we need to think of the health and wellness of Worthington and the surrounding communities. Trust us when we say, we are as disappointed as anyone to make this decision. It takes a great deal of planning and work, along with all the great sponsors and supporters to make this the biggest and best festival in Southwest Minnesota each year. We continue to plan events and fundraisers looking to the future. Thank you all for understanding, and we’ll see you for more fun in 2021! Jason Johnson, KTD President Where else can you find race teams herding their star "athletes" (wild racing turkeys) down main street? The Great Gobbler Gallop is part of Worthington, Minnesota's very own King Turkey Day festival.
