24th Annual National Cornbread Festival 5k - Cancelled

National Cornbread Festival – April 2020


As with each of you, we have been closely monitoring the daily changes in the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. Over the past few weeks, we have been in contact with our organizing partners and state and local officials.

The health and safety of our community is at the forefront of our minds as we put on the festival. We believe it is important to adhere to the best practices suggested by the Department of Health and the CDC. We have made the decision to cancel this year’s festival. We look forward to seeing you all in April 2021!
