Love Peanuts, Northwest? Celebrate Your Favorite Legume During the Suffolk Peanut Fest, Happening Oct. 8 in Suffolk!
October 5, 2015
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.
