Portsmouth, Ohio – The Arc of Appalachia is pleased to announce the return of the John Roger Simon Sorghum Festival. After running for 37 years, the annual festival was thought to be permanently retired as an inevitable consequence of its aging organizers. After a three-year hiatus, the non-profit Arc of Appalachia and festival founder, John Simon, have collaborated to bring the Sorghum Festival back to life for its 38th run, to be held on the weekend of October 1 & 2, 2022, outside West Portsmouth on Carey’s Run-Pond Creek Road. Simon hopes people will come hungry! Hot dogs with Bea’s homemade hotdog sauce and chips, bean soup with cornbread, and a variety of sorghum-sweetened baked goods will be available throughout the event. Sorghum syrup will be sold as long as supplies last. Parking and admission are FREE. Address: John R. Simon Farm, 8721 Pond Creek-Carey's Run Road, West Portsmouth, Ohio 45663 Farm Hours: Saturday, October 1 and Sunday, October 2, 2022 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, visit our website at www.arcofappalachia.org.
