Get Ready for Baldwin Troutarama!

July 24th-27th, 2024

Since 1957, thousands of people have annually met in Baldwin every July to enjoy themselves at the Troutarama Festival. One of the highlights of the Troutarama Festival is the Grand Parade with a performance by the “world famous” Scottville Clown Band. The Troutarama is packed with even more fun including a free concert, craft exhibits & sales, a 5k race, cornhole tournament, midway by Schmidt Amusements, kids activities, and an entertainment tent with live music.
