Home Events & Festivals Navy Bean Fall Festival Twitter Facebook Print About Navy Bean Fall FestivalStarted nearly 29 years ago, the Rising Bean Fall Festival began when members of the local merchant's association met to brainstorm about how to foster community and drive business to the town. Hosted by Carolyn Simpson, one of the group raved about her soup and the Navy Bean Fall Festival was born! Along with the soup served Friday night at 5pm and noon on Saturday, the event features top-named entertainers, rides, vendors, and a Saturday morning parade. Join us as large steam jacketed pots will steadily be cooking up Navy Bean soup along the riverfront at Front Street in Rising Sun. Get it while it's hot and while supplies last!
