Throughout its duration, the National Peanut Festival entertains guests of all ages with a variety of family-friendly events that vary from year to year, including concerts, livestock parades and a parade that serves as the festival’s grand finale.

Fireworks at the Fairgrounds

Gear up for Independence Day the American way with a thrilling display of fireworks at this annual event. Every year, Fireworks at the Fairgrounds combines live music, good food, and of course, fireworks that’ll light up the sky over the National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds.

Low Country Boil

A great way to end the summer season, the Low Country Boil is held once a year at Landmark Park in Dothan. Enjoy lots of great food and live performances from local musicians. This Southern favorite is cooked up in a huge kettle and then brought to guests’ tables in wheelbarrows.

Fall Farm Day
