Many years later the Chamber & Community Partners worked together as one. In 2009 we held our first 4th of July parade with great pride and success. Our Fall Festival celebrated its 34th year in 2010 along with a Gospel Concert.
The city of Sneedville is small compared to some but anyone who comes to visit will always feel welcome. Hancock County Tn. is well known for our American flags though out the county. Sneedville is the county seat and we take pride in that, during the 4th of July our flags fly to honor the veterans , at Christmas our courthouse displays nearly a million lights and the smiles on the childrens faces makes our holiday shine.
Vardy Blackwater is the historical site of the Mulungeon Heritage, dating back to early 1800's. Each year hundreds of people gather for a reunion and stories about Mahalia Mullins.
A Bluegrass festival is held in honor of Jimmy Martin at the end of May.
