2022 marks the 54th Palisade Peach Festival, a sweet day dedicated to the town’s bountiful harvest of peaches.
The festivities start on Thursday with an ice cream social, crowning the Peach Queen and court, and an evening street dance. Things continue on Friday with tours of the orchard, lunch, food vendors, bartenders, and plenty of live music.
Saturday offers a full day of activities. The pancake breakfast and the Just Peachy 5K and 10K run lead to the parade, tours, cooking demonstrations, and more live music. Don’t forget to end the day with the BBQ Throwdown and peach eating contests.
