Sorghum Festival Celebrates 52 Years
The Morgan County Sorghum Festival is preparing for it’s 52nd year of operation this month. The festival contains something for everyone: from arts & crafts, to various food booths, souvenir sales, youth activities and more. A parade is also planned for the festival.
Morgan County Sorghum Festival Co-Chair David Bradley said the origins of the Sorghum Festival date back to 1970 and was started by local citizens.
“They actually had the first festival, and it was actually called the Dogwood Festival at that time and they had the first festival on the high school football field. They saw the festival as an added attraction to try to highlight the businesses they had downtown so the next year it was actually moved downtown. It’s been an attraction downtown ever since.”
Bradley also said anyone and everyone is welcome to attend the festivities.
“We would love for everyone all around to come and attend, and have a weekend of family fun with us.”
The Morgan County Sorghum Festival will be held on September 22nd through the 24th. More information can be found at www.morgancountysorghumfestival.com.
