Plans for the 56th Annual Virginia Peanut Festival are well underway. We will have all of your favorites including arts and crafts, educational exhibits, a parade, live musical entertainment throughout the weekend, tractor displays, golf tournament, and that festival food we all look forward to every year.
The Car show will be held this year at its original site, The Old Elementary School, 114 South Main Street. From the old to the new, there is something there for everyone. Cars, trucks, motorcycles; we have it all!
Dreamland Amusements will provide top notch carnival attractions. Be sure to check back for our unlimited ride specials.
Activities will begin on Thursday, the 20th with the annual Kick-Off Kook-Off Food Tasting Competition at the Emporia Farmers Market. The Festival will conclude on Saturday, September 22nd. The carnival will remain open on Sunday, September 23rd, with a fabulous UNLIMITED RIDE SPECIAL!
We will see you in the park…
