'A Grainger County Christmas to Remember' is Saturday, November 7, at Rutledge Elementary School

GRAINGER COUNTY, Tenn. — When you hear the words Grainger County what do you immediately think of? Probably the Grainger County tomato festival. The coronavirus canceled the annual event this year which usually attracts thousands of people.

Angela Owens came up with an idea to bring people to the county to support local businesses.
