The 56th Festival: Things to Know


The 56th Lexington County Peach Festival will be held July 4th, 2014 in Gilbert, SC. The festival takes place in the Gilbert Community Park: located on Rikard Circle behind Gilbert United Methodist Church and between Gilbert Primary and Gilbert Middle Schools.



Festival Overview:

For 56 years, the Town of Gilbert has hosted the Lexington County Peach Festival, and it is recognized as one of the most successful and prestigious events of its kind in the southeast United States. Summer after summer in the 50's, 60's, and 70's, the community was alive with the harvesting, packing, and shipping of peaches. Today, we find only a few peach farms still in operation, however the peach remains (in our minds) the "Queen of all Fruits", and worthy of honor in our small town.


The Lexington County Peach Festival is held every year on July 4th (or July 3rd if the 4th should land on a Sunday) in Gilbert, SC at the Gilbert Community Park. Festivities kick off every year at 8:30 am and stretch into the night until 10:00pm when we bring the day to a close with a dazzling display of fireworks. The Peach Pageant, Peach Parade, Live Entertainment, Art Contest, Antique Car Show and many more exciting events take place in conjunction with the festival.


We thank WIS News 10 for their continued support over the years.
