Tabor City, North Carolina, is known as the “Yam Capitol of the World”!  Since 1948, our town has come together during the fourth weekend in October to celebrate the sweet potato harvest.

We celebrate the week as a community with a sweet potato cook-off, downtown decorating, an art show, pageant, Yam Bowl, and much more! The day of the festival, the downtown area is closed to traffic as we enjoy fun, food, and fellowship in the heart of Tabor City.

A highlight of the season is welcoming the many visitors the festival brings our way. Together, we kick off the parade, and then eat and shop while children explore the KidsZone.

The NC Yam Festival offers two stages with a variety of entertainment, including a Little Farmer and Farmerette contest. “Tabor’s Got Talent” is also a crowd favorite. Tabor City has so much to offer, and we look forward to showing off our Southern gem of a town.
