No Slugburger Festival is complete without an official T-shirt.

This year’s design is a throwback to the quintessential event’s rich 30 year history, according to Main Street Director Angela Avent.

“It’s a simple and laid back design featuring the traditional slug while also recognizing the cornerstone events of the festival weekend – the eating contest, the Midway and the entertainment,” said Avent. “All shirts are royal blue in color with red outline font and art.”

Shirts went on sale this week ahead of the July 13-15 festival.

Sizes include youth extra small through adult 3XL. Prices are $10 for youth sizes and $15 for adult sizes.

Shirts can be purchased at Borroum’s, The Alliance and FMBank.

“We will also have shirts available at the festival, as always,” added Avent.

The 30th annual festival will feature entertainment, a pageant, an eating contest, carnival rides and fresh slugburgers cooked onsite.

The entertainment lineup includes the local Slug Voice Competition sponsored by Garrett Eye Clinic on Thursday night, Cary Hudson and George McConnell Duo and Mustache Band on Friday night while Tate Moore of Kudzu Kings and the 1-900 Band is slated to close out the festival on Saturday night.

The World Slugburger Eating Championship will return on Saturday afternoon and feature several top ranked competition eaters.

The Miss Slugburger Festival Pageant will also return this year after several off years.

Entertainment will be set up at the Corinth Depot Complex and C.A.R.E. Honor Garden, while the festival’s carnival Midway will be set up across the train tracks from the depot.

Slugburger festival has always used a slug as the mascot. People out of town will not eat them because they think they are made with slimy snails. Would be better to use two slug burgers with boxing gloves slugging it out.
