The 20th annual Lafayette Peach Festival turns South Public Road, the town’s main street, into one peachy carnival on Saturday, August 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. You’ll find truckloads of peaches for purchase at three locations (Public Road and Cleveland, Public Road and East Chester and Public Road and Kimbark).
Peach trucks from Morton’s Orchards, Red Fox Orchards and Tate Orchard bring in more than 30,000 pounds of certified organic peaches from Palisade.
Head to Festival Plaza for 500 fresh whole peach pies, 100 large trays of peach cobbler that are sold in individual portions and more than 2,500 peach smoothies — while supplies last. Don’t dawdle, because the baked goods do sell out.
In addition to a farmers’ market vendors, you’ll find artists, antique dealers and crafters from all over the Front Range and beyond.
Of course, there’s FREE entertainment on two stages, one exclusively with kids’ performers. Also for kids there’s, FREE face painting and balloon sculpting all day.
Parking is in the surrounding neighborhoods. Please be aware not to block driveways or park in an area designated no parking.
