What would a summer in the South be like without peaches?
Not to worry, because the annual South Carolina Peach Festival returns to downtown Gaffney from July 17-26.
Most of the events will take place over three days from July 17-19. The festival’s kickoff event will be July 17 at 9 a.m. at the Chamber of Commerce. Later that day, there will be a dessert contest, a peach eating contest and Talent Night (Fullerton Auditorium, 7:30 p.m.). On July 18, activities continue in downtown Gaffney with a golf tournament, carnival, arts and crafts and the Barbecue Wing Ding at 6 p.m.
Another full day of events continues on July 19, starting at 7 a.m. with a road race and other events including: carnival rides, wrestling, a car show and live music. Musical performers include Ali Henderson from American Idol, Darrell Harwood and Headliner Jason Michael Carroll!
The festival concludes on July 26 with a Mud Bog. For a complete schedule of events, visit scpeachfestival.org.
