Get Swept Up

September 4 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm

Each fall, on the Wednesday before Mississippi State’s first home football game, hundreds of volunteers take to the streets, parks, and other outdoor areas of Starkville armed with rakes, shovels, and pruning shears. Their goal? Clean up the city and make it especially attractive to the thousands of visitors who will be coming to town for fall football games.

Local residents are encouraged to fly the Mississippi State flag and to mow, trim, and do whatever it takes to spruce up their homes and yards.

Get Swept Up! is coordinated by the Greater Starkville Development Partnership and sponsored by local businesses.

VOLUNTEER
The real work is done by upwards of 500 people who donate their time and energy. They pull weeds, trim shrubberies, pick up trash, and do whatever it takes to make the city look its best. A number of organizations, including garden and civic clubs, take part, too.
