Pork Fest Twitter

Welcome to the 2021 Tipton County Pork Festival!

Join us on September 9th, 10th, and 11th. 

In 1969, spouses of several local pork producers thought it would be a good idea to cook some pork chops and put on a festival to promote the product that supported the local economy.  So, they set up shop on the courthouse lawn and a festival was born!  Among those credited with organizing the first festival were Henrietta Larson, Nan Nash, Margaret Hinkle and Bobbie Kauffman.  We are a 501(c)(4) not for profit organization promoting social welfare in our community.  2021 is our 53rd year!
