Love Peanuts, Northwest? Celebrate Your Favorite Legume During the Suffolk Peanut Fest, Happening Oct. 8 in Suffolk!
It's salty, it's shelled, and it's delicious by the handful or in your favorite savory and sweet snacks. We're talking about the peanut, of course, and if you're a fan of this nutty legume, then be sure to plan a visit to the Suffolk Peanut Fest! A Suffolk tradition for nearly four decades, this annual festival will return for its 38th year to the Suffolk Executive Airport, not too far from Northwest.
The family-friendly fun starts on Thursday, Oct. 8, and continues for three days thereafter. On the docket for this year's event? Tractor pulls, pony rides, a petting zoo, amusement park rides and games, a demolition derby, cornhole tournament, and plenty of live music — and peanuts! It's all part of the festival's mission: to "honor [Suffolk]’s agriculture heritage and devotion to peanuts, our favorite legumes."
The Suffolk Peanut Fest is free to enter, and parking will be offered at $15 per vehicle, per entry. If you plan on attending the event more than once this year, consider purchasing a four-day parking pass for $25.
