Jamestown Lions Club Bean Festival

We are lucky enough this year to have not 1 but 2 major sponsors, Big Thank You to Premier Health and Kettering Health Network.

This year the Jamestown Bean Festival does not fall on the same weekend as the Xenia Festival, so we are so excited about the opportunity this gives us.

The Lions members have been very busy getting vendors lined up and all the prep work that is required to put on a successful event.

We are happy to share with you that this year the Lions members will be making and running the bean tent. So please plan on stopping by the bean tent to get your beans and cornbread, it will be located in the old bank parking lot.

Happy to also announce that this year we will have Greene County FFA Alumni Kiddie Tractor pull. It is being sponsored by Stephan and Associates Wealth Management and trophies given by Englewood Towing and Recovery.

There are still spots available for the vendors and concessions, as well as opportunity to be in the parade.
