Georgia may have snagged the title “Peach State,” but there is no better place in the world for anyone in the “peach state of mind” than the 69th Annual Louisiana Peach Festival. This year’s theme is “A Peach in Time.”
The Annual Louisiana Peach Festival takes place in the hometown of Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC Cadillac: the lovely little town of Ruston, Louisiana. This year, the festivities run from Friday, June 21st to Saturday, June 22nd. You can have any sort of summer fun under the sun at the Peach Fest, from kids’ fishing tournaments to live outdoor concerts. Of course, there will also be a constant stream of peach-themed events and activities taking place to celebrate everyone’s favorite stone-fruit. We’re talking peach-eating contests, peach art exhibits, “cobbler gobbler” eating contests, and more.
Peaches used throughout the event come from three north-central Louisiana orchards: Mitcham Farm, Thompson’s Peach Farm, and Yak’s Peaches and Vegetables. You can visit all three of these wonderful farms all year round to keep your family stocked with fresh-from-the-branch produce.
Friday before 5:00 PM, admission to the Peach Fest is free. After 5:00 PM on Friday and all day on Saturday, admission is $10.00. A weekend pass option is available for just $15.00. Children age 11 and under receive free admission all weekend long.
