This year's festival is September 2-11, 2016 and our theme is "HOMEGROWN"!
Kickoff event tentatively scheduled for August 27th, 2016!
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 23rd annual Soybean Festival!
SOYBEAN SOARS — The Tennessee Soybean Festival racked up more accolades last week at the Southeast Festivals and Events Association.

Additionally, the Soybean Festival won bronze for Best Poster promoting the Guitar As Art event. Katie Smith and Jason Stout organized this event, and the poster was designed by Kendall Fowler, a UTM alumnus who majored in Graphic Design.
