Mrs. Parnell's Peachy Things Culinary Contest

During 2019, our community lost a dear friend and advocate.  Andrea Parnell was a local educator who loved Porter and the Festival was an integral part of her life for years.  In honor of Andrea's dedication to her community, the annual culinary contests have been revamped to help us preserve her memory.  Mrs. Parnell's Peachy Things Culinary Contest will give you a chance to show off your best recipes and kitchen skills.  Half of the entry fees for this event will be donated to the Andrea Parnell Memorial Scholarship Fund. Help us make this event a huge success!!  More information is available here.

Arts & Crafts and Food Vendors

You will love browsing the arts and crafts booths at the Peach Festival.  Art pieces, crafts, clothing, soap and candles - truly there is something for everyone here!   When you get hungry, take a break from shopping and enjoy anything your heart desires - BBQ, Indian Tacos, Home Cooking, Hamburgers, Kettle Corn, SnoCones, and of course, lots of Peach Goodness!!

Free Peach Ice Cream!!

If you ask anyone what the best part of the Peach Festival is, chances are they will tell you "Free Peaches and Ice Cream"!!  For decades now, the Porter Lions Club, with peaches donated from Livesay Orchards, provides thousands of bowls of free peaches and ice cream to visitors of the town.  It's a great way to beat the heat - Day and Time Coming Soon!

Parade

It doesn't get more small-town perfect than a parade!  Everyone is invited to be in the parade, so if your group wants to make a float, you have a cool car, a horse you love to ride in parades, or whatever - show up and join in the fun!  Day and Time Coming Soon! 

Prize Peach Auction

A lot has changed since the Porter Peach festival began 55 years ago, but one thing remains the same - the desire of the town to provide for civic and community improvements.  The Festival began as a way to raise funds to build the town's Civic Center, still used today, by auctioning off prize peaches from the various orchards.  Today, the Lions Club still auctions off the very best peaches available in Porter, generously donated by Livesay Orchards, to fund its annual community projects.  The auction will take place at noon on Saturday - please join us and loosen up those pocketbooks for a good cause!
