27th ANNUAL TENNESSEE SOYBEAN FESTIVAL CANCELLED

The Award-Winning Tennessee Soybean Festival

Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel the 27th Annual Tennessee

Soybean Festival planned for Sept. 5-12, due to the uncertainties that still lie

ahead from the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to TSF Executive Director, David Belote, “The information we are currently

receiving from state and federal governments indicates that we should discontinue our

efforts to host festivals, fairs, or other special events that have the capacity to draw

large numbers of people until further notice. The Tennessee Soybean Festival requires

advance planning in the form of securing agreements with carnivals, street vendors,

entertainment acts and other attractions. From a planning perspective, we simply

cannot take the financial risk given the uncertainty of the future. We are dealing with a

pandemic and the obvious restrictions that it imposes.”
