Welcome to the website of the Tennessee Soybean Festival. We are fortunate to have a collaborative effort of the University of Tennessee at Martin, local industry and businesses, leaders in agriculture, churches and community organizations, and countless other volunteers who work together to make the festival bigger and better each year. The Soybean Festival provides an opportunity for food, fun and fellowship, all in celebration of Weakley County’s cash crop- the soybean. The event pays tribute to the soybean farmer yet includes something for everyone. We hope you will make plans to join us for the 24th annual Soybean Festival!


The Tennessee Soybean Festival walked away with great accolades from the Southeast Festival and Events Association banquet hosted in Lexington, KY. There was stiff competition this year, and we are honored to be recognized in the Southeast Region as an AWARD-WINNING festival. We do it for the smiles, laughter, children, sparkle, and overall celebration of community. We are thankful for the volunteers, sponsors, and community support for 24 great years! These awards are yours! #MakingMartinProud
