Porter Peach Festival
617 S Main St
The Porter Peach Festival celebrates the area crop of peaches with a myriad of activities and events perfect for a summer day with the family. Pick peaches at nearby orchards, then head to Porter's downtown Main Street for arts and crafts, games, live music and a wide variety of fair food. This old-fashioned festival also includes carnival rides, a Peach Pageant and much more.
Visitors to this year's festival can join the Peach Classic 5K Run, watch an antique tractor pull, view a car, truck and motorcycle show, and enjoy live entertainment. Stay tuned for a talent competition featuring local musicians and performers.
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.
On early Saturday afternoon, watch the annual Peach Parade, and stick around for free peaches and ice cream. 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.
