The Liver Mush Festival of Marion NC
is an annual event held each year the first Friday in June. The streets are closed and the downtown area becomes an open space for the community to celebrate this southern staple. Liver Mush, in case you did not know, is a pork and cornmeal product made for generations, most likely, by folks coming south through the Appalachian Mountains by German settlers from Philadelphia. We celebrate that heritage each year with this wonderful festival.
