Smithfield Ham & Yam Festival

The Ham & Yam Festival will be celebrating our local heritage at the 32nd annual festival, scheduled for Saturday, May 7, 2016!

The Ham & Yam Festival will again offer a full schedule of events that will attract thousands of people to Downtown Smithfield, where the festival occupies several blocks.  Craft and commercial vendors line the streets, food vendors offer a variety of fair foods and menu items featuring country ham and sweet potatoes, and local bands and dance groups perform on three stages.  The festival features a barbecue cook-off, rubber duck race, 5k, and the always popular "What's That Yam Thing?" contest.
