COMMUNITY SHOWCASE DAY featuring SOPCHOPPY, FL
Sopchoppy, an unhurried old Florida community, is fondly described by locals as “35 miles and 100 years southwest of Tallahassee.” It is located on the east side of the Sopchoppy River, one of Florida’s blackwater streams. The GF&A railroad that once ran through Sopchoppy played a vital part in shaping the character of this town. Almost all of the original buildings, including the old railroad depot, have been restored and many are on the National Register of Historic Places. Now surrounded by the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and the Apalachicola National Forest, Sopchoppy has been designated as a Florida Trail “Gateway Community”. The area remains a relatively undisturbed hotspot of biodiversity and nature-based pursuits. The Worm Gruntin’ Festival attracts thousands of visitors every April. Sopchoppy has become known as the music center of Wakulla County where many local musicians as well as artists reside. The Sopchoppy Opry is held the last Saturday of most months and always draws large crowds for an evening of lively entertainment.
