One event on October 2, 2022 at 10:00 am
The John Roger Simon Sorghum Festival returns to Scioto County October 1 & 2, 2022 from 10am-4pm. After running for 37 years, this annual festival was thought to be permanently retired in 2018, but the non-profit organization, the Arc of Appalachia is collaborating with the festival’s founder, John Simon, to bring it back! The festival features the making of sorghum syrup, heritage craft demonstrations, country food, and musicians playing traditional live Appalachian music. The event will be held on Carey’s Run- Pond Creek Road, just outside West Portsmouth. There are no entrance or parking fees – just bring cash for hot food and sweets!
