About:

In our 60th year, the Town of Gilbert will host the Lexington County Peach Festival. It is recognized as one of the most successful and prestigious events of its kind in the southeast United States. Summer after summer in the 50's, 60's, and 70's, the community was alive with the harvesting, packing, and shipping of peaches. Today, while we find only a few peach farms still in operation, the peach remains (in our minds) the Queen of all Fruits and worthy of honor in our small town. 

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. This year's festival will be held on Wednesday, July 4th, 2018. 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 as you enjoy live entertainment, the peachy and patriotic parade, over 100 Art & Craft Exhibits, antique car show, a Revolutionary War Re-enactment, tractor show, children’s rides, and many food items specializing in “Peachy” delights!  A student Peach Art Contest held in May and the Peach Pageants scheduled for June are also held in conjunction with the Peach Festival.
