Court Square

Blakely, Georgia

It's more than just a festival...

The Peanut Proud Festival is an annual celebration that honors the peanut industry and what it means to our community. The all-day festival creates an experience like no other, on the 4th Saturday in March, from 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M. on the Blakely Courthouse Square. MUSIC, FOOD, FUN, AND DANCE, bring our citizens and their families, our local businesses, our leaders and our respected peanut farmers together for a day of community spirit and celebration. The day includes Free Concerts, the Peanut Proud Parade, a Kid Zone full of activities for the young goobers, a 5k Run and Fun Run for those of you that are full of energy, arts and craft Vendors with one of a kind items and the much loved Street Dance to close out the night. The Peanut Proud family vine grows longer every year as it draws thousands of not-so-local visitors and vendors.
