Join us for the 35th annual Ham & Yam Festival! With pig races, inflatables, vendors, entertainment and ham and yam foods, it's a fun day for the entire family! There will be 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 entertainment on the festival's three stages throughout the day. The festival features a barbecue cook-off, rubber duck race, and the always popular "What's That Yam Thing?" contest. See you soon in Downtown Smithfield!
