One aspect of Ruleville that makes this small town great is the annual Great Ruleville Roast. The Great Ruleville Roast that started in 2005 keeps growing every year. Due to the COVID Pandemic, the town was unable to celebrate the 15th year in 2020; therefore, 2021’s Great Ruleville Roast will be the 15-year celebration.
2021’s Great Ruleville Roast will begin Friday, September 24th at 6:00 p.m. in downtown Rule Park with The Grove Factor Band kicking off the festivities. Grilling’ Outta Quarantine is the theme.
The Festival will continue Saturday, September 25th in downtown Rule Park beginning at 9:00 a.m. with Championship smokers, basters, tasters and everyday eaters being serenaded by the live entertainment throughout the day starting with Boundless Love Gospel Group from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Thomas Edwards Central High School Band will perform at 10:15 a.m. followed by Joe Garcia & The Big Guns from 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and last but not least, Mississippi Marshall will play from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Saturday will also be filled with MBN BBQ Competitions and the FIRST EVER World Junior BBQ League Competition.
