A word from Mayor Randy Brundige:

On behalf of the Board of Aldermen, staff, and residents, I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to Martin—home of the Tennessee Soybean Festival and the University of Tennessee at Martin.Just like the Tennessee Soybean Festival, the City of Martin has seen much change and growth over the years. We hope that you will come to Martin to see for yourself and enjoy the festival. While you are with us in Martin, I encourage you to take advantage of our many unique shops and restaurants.

Planning a festival has its challenges, but we always strive to find the right mix of everything to present a festival for everyone. This year is no different as we celebrate Thirty Years of the Tennessee Soybean Festival. Much recognition and appreciation are extended to the many who put in countless hours of work to make the Tennessee Soybean Festival a success. I sincerely thank those who give of their time and those who contribute both monetarily and in-kind. Leading this effort is really the easy task, and I would be remiss to not recognize and thank our Tennessee Soybean Festival Committee, volunteers, sponsors, city employees, and you, our patrons.

See you at the bean!
