The Parker County Peach Festival is a premiere Texas event that is held annually on the second Saturday in July from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. In addition to celebrating the peach crop from local growers, the festival also showcases over 200 arts, craft and food vendors.
This is the place to get your fill of homemade peach ice cream, peach cobbler, peach juleps, peach tea or just plain ol' juicy peaches. Entrance to the festival is $5.00 for adults and children 12 and under are free. Last year more than 50,000 people visited this peachy one day event.
There is also a Peach Pedal that is co-sponsored by the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce and United way. The bike ride is held that morning, so after the ride many of the riders attend the festival.
