The Silver Year: Our 25th Annual International Rutabaga Curl will be held on the last Saturday outdoor market of the year, December 17th, at the Ithaca Farmers Market pavilion. Sign up to be part of the competition or sit back and enjoy the show, there’s a lot going on!

Registration begins at 10a.m. and the Curl kicks off at high noon. Younger participants can join in the turnip toss! You’ll have ample time to practice throwing and to alter your rutabaga to your liking.

Stay tuned for more details on this wild, wacky and ridiculous event. Learn more about the 2021 Rutabaga Curl on the farmers market website, and join the 2022 Facebook event HERE to stay up to date!
