Parker County Peach Festival

June 23, 2014 by Phil Major

Event Date: 
Sat, 07/12/2014 - 8:00am

The 30th Annual Parker County Peach Festival is shaping up to be one of the best. Organizers are busy with more than 200 art/craft, food and activity vendors. More than 35,000 folks flocked to Weatherford for this outstanding one day event last year. This year’s organizers are planning for an even better event held in Historic Downtown Weatherford Saturday, July 12, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than by enjoying some peachy treats. Visitors can get their fill of homemade peach ice cream, peach cobbler, peach pie, peach juleps, peach tea, peach smoothies, ice cream topped with fresh peaches or just plain ol’ juicy peaches, eaten with the fuzz. And yes, plenty of Parker County peaches.
There’s food, fun and non-stop entertainment for the entire family. Take children to the Kiddie Korner for slides, rides and face painting.
More than 200 quality arts and crafts, produce and food vendors will line the historic streets of downtown for shopping with the charming Parker County Courthouse as the backdrop. Many antique and specialty stores will have specials throughout the day so be sure and visit the downtown merchants as well.
Along with the festival, there’s also the 25th Annual Peach Pedal Bike Ride with more than 2,200 cyclists. This peachy event has grown each year and continues to gain momentum. Since moving the event to Weatherford High School in 2008 the pedal has grown and gets better each year. To get more information on this popular bike ride visit www.peachpedal.com
Or just sit back and relax, pull up a seat at one of our three entertainment stages and enjoy the local talent. With an array of local celebrities and entertainers, the fun never stops on these stages.
This family friendly festival is good ol’ fashioned fun. Mark calendars now to spend a peachy day in Parker County July 12.
