Held in Gilbert Community Park, you’ll not only get to eat lots of peaches, you’ll also get to eat barbecue and see a tractor show. Let’s not pretend this doesn’t entice you at least a little.
The Lexington County Peach Festival is held every year on July 4th (or July 3rd if the 4th is on a Sunday) in Gilbert, SC at the Gilbert Community Park. Festivities kick off every year with the parade at 9:30 am and stretch into the night until 10:00 pm when we bring the day to a close with a dazzling display of fireworks. We hope you plan to spend July 4th with us in Gilbert as you enjoy the live entertainment, parade, over 100 Art & Craft Exhibits, an antique car show, a Revolutionary War Re-enactment, a tractor show, children’s rides, and numerous food items specializing in “Peachy” delights! A student Peachy Art Contest held in May at the various schools and the various divisions of the Peach Pageants scheduled for June 28 are events also held in conjunction with the Peach Festival.
