CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman’s signature agricultural Labor Day event, the Sweet Tater Festival, will welcome folks from near and far Labor Day weekend. The two-day event, scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 4 from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. and Monday, Sept. 5 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., will be held at Smith Lake Park.

The Sweet Tater Festival Car Show will be the highlight Monday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.

The 26th annual event will feature food vendors, live entertainment, arts and crafts vendors and all the sweet potatoes you can imagine. Attendance to the festival is $5 for a daily pass or admittance for both days.

The guest of honor is, as always, Alabama’s state vegetable – the sweet potato. The root vegetable is a member of the morning glory family and a popular side dish on the holiday table in casseroles and pies. Sweet potato fries are a delectable treat as is a baked sweet potato with a smidge of butter, salt and pepper.
