The 21st Annual N.C. Peach Festival will be held on Saturday, July 15, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the heart of downtown Candor.
Each year, some 6,000 – 8,000 people come from across the state for fresh peaches, great entertainment and fun activities.
N.C. Cooperative Extension officials say that not all the peaches may have been affected by recent bad weather. The later varieties, those ripening in mid-late July, may be okay.
The N.C. Peach Festival is held at Fitzgerald Park, in downtown Candor. The town is located one mile off I-73/I-74 in Montgomery County. The event will be held rain or shine.
