Marion County Country Ham Days
Lebanon, KY, KY 40033 United States
Marion County Country Ham Days is recognized as one of the oldest and largest fall festivals in Kentucky. Held the last full weekend in September, the festival welcomes over 30,000 visitors. The event began in 1969, and started with a mere six hams and a small number of volunteers. Today, Ham Days serves over 3,000 pounds of country ham at our breakfast and food booth and recruits over 200 Marion County volunteers. Ham Days was voted as the “Second Best Festival/Event in Kentucky” by the readers of Kentucky Living magazine in 2020.

Numerous vendors sell a variety of foods for lunch and dinner in our Food Court.
