Smithfield Ham & Yam Festival

The Ham & Yam Festival presented by Stevens Sausage will be celebrating its North Carolina heritage like never before at the 31st annual festival, scheduled for Saturday, May 2, 2015!

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.
