Description of Event:

Now in its 30th year, the Smithfield Ham and Yam Festival is scheduled for Friday, May 2 and Saturday, May 3, 2014. LThe festival features a barbecue cook-off attracting great cooks from throughout the area to compete for cash prizes. Attendees can find many varieties of hams and yams at the festival - barbecue from the cook-off, country ham biscuits, hot dogs, sweet potato fries and desserts. The festival hosts the "What's That Yam Thing?" contest, a favorite for school-aged children given the opportunity to turn sweet potatoes into works of art. Visitors wander through the festival area filled with hundreds of booths occupied by face painters, local non-profit organizations, and vendors selling items including garden flags, handbags, kitchen tools, handmade jewelry and many other arts and crafts. The family event keeps crowds entertained with performances on three stages, children's games, carnival rides, pig races, and a petting zoo.
