A little history...

On July 29th, 1938 plans for the first festival celebrating the peanut was discussed. Originally designated as the 'Floresville Peanut POW WOW' to promote Floresville top cash crop of that time and shine a favorable light over Wilson County.

In August, 1938 the name was changed forever to the 'Floresville Peanut Festival'.

Held on the second full weekend in October, the Peanut Festival recognizes the importance of the peanut historically to Southwest Texas agriculture,
