The National Peanut Festival, the nation's largest peanut festival, is held in Dothan, Alabama each fall to honor local peanut farmers and to celebrate the harvest season. Located in the southeast corner of Alabama, Dothan is known as the "Peanut Capital of the World" and is a prime location for growing peanuts. In fact, if you're in Dothan you're in the heart of peanut country, considering the majority of all the peanuts grown in the United States are grown within a 100 mile radius of Dothan.
Throughout its history, the festival has been held in various locations, with most of its years at the Houston County Farm Center. The National Peanut Festival has been at its current location, the fairgrounds on US Highway 231 South, since 1999. With over 200 acres, 2 exhibit buildings, an amphitheater, an open air arena and an Ag complex, the fairgrounds are now capable of hosting year-round events and further promoting agriculture in the Wiregrass area, in addition to hosting the yearly harvest celebration.
Today, the National Peanut Festival has grown from a three-day event in 1938, to a ten-day event with attendance in excess of 200,000 fairgoers. Throughout those 10 days, the festival hosts numerous fun-filled, family events...amusement rides, animal attractions, agricultural displays, concerts, livestock shows and a parade. Of course we wouldn't be the National Peanut Festival without tons of PEANUTS! Check the show's website for more information!
