The Porter Peach Festival celebrates the area crop of peaches with a myriad of activities and events perfect for a bright summer day with the family. Purchase or pick peaches at nearby orchards, or head to Porter's downtown Main Street for arts and crafts, games, live music and a wide variety of fair food. Bring the whole family to this old-fashioned festival for carnival rides and more. Attend the Peach Festival and see which lucky ladies are crowned Miss Peach, Miss Peach Blossom and Miss Peach Bud at this year's Peach Pageant.
Visitors to this year's Porter Peach Festival will be entertained with the Peach Classic 5K Run, an antique tractor pull, a car, truck and motorcycle show, as well as live entertainment, including a talent competition featuring local musicians and performers. The annual classic car, motorcycle and truck show will again make an appearance and Porter's Main Street will come alive with a wide variety of street games including turtle races, a frog-jumping contest and a balloon toss. Kids love the annual pet show, featuring categories such as ugliest dog, best trick, best costume, fattest cat and most unusual pet.
Make your way to the Porter Peach Festival for the annual Peach Parade, held early Saturday afternoon, and stick around for free peaches and ice cream, available as long as supplies last. There will also be a baked goods and recipe contest featuring a variety of peach cobblers, desserts and preserves. Don't forget to purchase a Peach Festival cookbook, filled with tasty down-home recipes, to take home with you.
