Panhandle Watermelon Festival

June 28, 2019 - June 29, 2019

In 1969, the social event would be organized into what is now known as the Panhandle Watermelon Festival, led by former Washington County Extension Agent Red Davis.

“We always try to remember that our watermelon festival is part of our history, that it first was a celebration at the end of the year for those who helped in the fields,” said Peel.

About 100 people are thought to have been in attendance at the first event in 1956, and more than 5,000 attendees were estimated in 2015. The festival continues to grow every year!
