Learn more about 59th Annual Polk County Ramp Tramp.
The Polk County Ramp Tramp Festival was started in 1958 by 4-H club members and volunteers who ”tramped” up the Big Frog Mountain in Polk County, TN to enjoy a hike on a spring day as well as a ramp meal. Today, that same traditional spirit lives on during the annual Polk County Ramp Tramp Festival.
Today’s festival is held at the Polk County 4-H Camp (Camp McCroy) on the fourth Saturday in April.
Admission is FREE.
