Since 1969, Ham Days begins with our annual “Pig Out on Proctor Knott” Thursday evening on the streets of downtown Lebanon. Come enjoy great bbq and the company’s pretty good too. Our Saturday morning begins with the Farmers National Bank Pokey Pig 5K, one of the largest races in the state with up to 1,000 runners. The Country Ham Breakfast, presented by Mordecai’s and the County Seat Kitchen and Bar, is served to visitors under the Hospitality Tent. For lunch or dinner, head on over the TG Kentucky Food Court and grab some beans and cornbread, a pork sandwich or a brat from the Knights of Columbus Food Booth or a steak sandwich from The Marion County Cattlemen’s Association. A fried twinkie, gyro, funnel cake or the best hot dog in town are also served from our many food vendors. Enjoy your lunch and dinner under the comfort of the Hospitality Tent. Musical groups and other entertainment are often hammin’ it up on the Makers Mark / Kentucky Cooperage Main Stage . Hot Air Balloons light up the autumn sky during the Yellowstone Hot Air Balloon Glow Saturday night at Graham Memorial Park. See the huge balloons fly over Lebanon early Sunday morning at the Limestone Branch Lift-Off.
