Peach Festivals in Canada in 2019: Where, When and More to Find a Peach Festival Near You!

 Canada

Peaches typically ripen from May (in northern Florida and Texas) through June, July and August in the mid-Atlantic, Midwest and New England. July dominates as the month for peach production (and festivals) Unlike strawberries, which grow almost anywhere, peaches are grown commercially in half as many states.

There are two general types of peach festivals 1) community festivals, usually organized by a church, school, local Chamber of commerce or a town and 2). Peach festival held at and by a farm. They are different in what they offer, and community festivals tend to be less expensive so they are grouped separately. (of course not all states and areas have both.)
Following the festival listings are links to our easy to follow directions about making peach jam, freezing peaches, peach pies and much more.
