Valley City Frog Jump Festival

Join us for an old time frog jumping competition, a la Mark Twain. Winners of each flight receive a trophy and compete for Grand Champion. In 1988, our longest leaper flew 19 feet 1 inch (in three jumps) into the Valley City history books. We've jumped 700 or more frogs over the last two years in a single day, most notably a record 725 in 2012!

Come enjoy a day of home cookin' with local Valley City vendors through a Taste of Valley City, which includes chicken dinners, hamburgers, Italian sausage, fresh fruit, corn-on-the-cob, ice cream, pizza and more. Enjoy lots of entertainment, face painting, children's games with prizes, the Great Rocky River Race with floatable frogs, the Hoppin' Retail Shoppe where you'll find our annual T-shirts, memorabilia, historical note and postcards.  Other activities include Paintball, Bounce House, and more the night before with Get a Jump on the Jump! a live band, food, the beer garden and the Hoppin' Retail Shoppe.
