The Trigg County Country Ham Festival is in its 38th year of celebration! So how did celebrating a "ham" come about? Below is a brief history of how it all began:

Prior to 1977, Farm-City week culminated in a bar-b-que dinner with a baking contest for county residents. While this was a wonderful time of fellowship and fun for the locals, it did not seem to be quite enough. University of Kentucky Agriculture Extension Agent, John Fourquean, did some brainstorming with other people in his office and two long time residents of the county, George Bleidt and Marvin Broadbent, Jr. It seemed that many other rural areas had festivals in either the spring or fall. Trigg County needed one also!!!!

Thus came the first Trigg County Country Ham Festival. Trigg County has long been noted for its delicacy - the country ham. A festival to preserve the craft of curing hams seemed only appropriate.
