Now that’s nuts! What is, you might say? Why, the National Peanut Festival 2019, of course! Hosted by our very own Dothan, Alabama, this festival boasts everything from concerts to chain saw art. It’s sure to be a good time! The National Peanut Festival 2019 will take place from Nov. 1 to Nov. 10.
What is the National Peanut Festival?
Launched in 1938, the National Peanut Festival is a 10-day festival celebrating the South, and headquartered in peanut-rich Dothan, Alabama. In fact, during the inaugural year, Dr. George Washington Carver served as the guest speaker. The festival has accrued multiple milestones and memories along its tenure—and those add on each and every year!
Isn’t there a pageant somehow involved?
Yes, there are two pageants that happen almost a month before the actual festival: the Miss National Peanut Festival and Little Miss National Peanut Festival. These beautiful ladies and girls are selected from counties in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia that produce peanuts. Whoever is crowned becomes an ambassador for the festival and the peanut industry. So, for this year, Miss National Peanut Festival 2019 and Little Miss National Peanut Festival 2019 will be crowned ambassadors, respectively.
What are some of the events?
We’re glad you asked! The festival will play host to a number of acts, activities, and more. A variety of entertainment options will dot the festival, including chainsaw art, hog racing, magic shows, agricultural education, a petting zoo, and a demolition derby. Concerts will also be played throughout the 10-day bonanza, with musical performances ranging from a family show quintet to a country/Southern rock band.
How do I purchase tickets?
Tickets are on sale online on the website. They have a range of options to choose from, from the full 10-day season tickets to general admission to the festival.
