Clanton Peach Festival

Clanton, AL 35045

Since its beginning in 1947, the Chilton County Peach Festival has grown to be bigger and better. The primary purpose of the Peach Festival is to recognize the peach farmers of the county for the vital role they play in the economy of Chilton County.

Archie Ogburn, a banker in Thorsby, is the father of the Chilton County Peach Festival. His dream was to have a festival which recognized the peach growers and their labor and product, the peach, to Chilton County. He also wanted the world to know about Chilton County peaches.

From its meager beginning at Thorsby Institute, which included the selection of a Peach Queen and a Peach Auction, Ogburn's dream did come true and the Peach Festival tradition lives on.
