The last full weekend in September we celebrate Marion County Country Ham Days, a β€œKentucky Top-Ten Event,” hosted by the Marion County Chamber of Commerce along with its business partners and volunteers. The festival welcomes over 30,000 visitors and acts as an agent for community empowerment.

The event began in 1969, and started with a mere six hams and a small number of volunteers. Today, Ham Days serves over 2,000 pounds of country ham at our famous Country Ham Breakfast and recruits hundreds of Marion County volunteers.
