We are gearing up for the 50th Annual Chitlin Strut on Saturday, November 28th, 2015.  We are so excited for this year and hope that you make plans to join us. 

Thank you so much to our sponsors Aiken Electric Cooperative, Aiken County Council, Atlantic Broadband, Security Federal Bank & SCE&G.

This site is new and will be updated regularly closer to the date of the Chitlin Strut. 

Vendor applications are now available on the Vendor Application page.

NEW THIS YEAR:  The Town of Salley has adopted a new Ordinance which amended the Chitlin Strut Ordinance to read the following: On the day of the Chitlin Strut, outdoor cooking beyond the confines of the Festival grounds is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN except for those permanent food establishments, registered campers and citizens of the Town of Salley.  The Town of Salley Police Department will enforce the new Ordinance with a zero tolerance. 

Letter from the Mayor:

     The Mayor of Salley and the Salley Town Council invite you to browse through our web site in order to learn about our festival known as the Chitlin Strut.  You are also invited to our Golden Anniversary of this year's event.

     The Town of Salley is known as the Chitlin Capitol of the World.  It has been estimated that people have eaten over one-half million pounds of chitlins since the beginning of the Strut and the town has had approximately one million visitors.

     Come join the fun and eat more chitlins!
