    Sweet potato in hands at the Ham & Yam Festival in Smithfield, NC.The Smithfield Ham & Yam Festival has grown into a celebration of the agricultural products that Smithfield and Johnston County are known for, with music and ham and yam foods galore! YUM!  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 local artists, craftspeople, and makers, face painters, local non-profit organizations, and more. The family event keeps crowds entertained with performances on multiple stages, children’s games, and inflatables. Don't forget to follow our Facebook page for more news and pictures!
