Representatives of the City of Clanton, the Chilton County Chamber of Commerce, the Clanton Lion’s Club and the City of Clanton Arts Council met recently to announce plans for the 2024 Chilton County Peach Festival and Peach Jam Jubilee. For the first time, the Peach Jam Jubilee will kick-off the annual Peach Festival celebration and will be expanded to become a two-day event.

Scheduled for June 7-8, 2024 the Peach Jam Jubilee will be the first of a series of events planned for the month-long Peach Festival.  In keeping with tradition, the Peach Festival parade and auction will held on June 29, 2024, the last Saturday of the month.  Pageants for the Peach Queen competition, the Peach Run, and multiple events at Corner Park in downtown Clanton will be scheduled throughout the month of June as the community celebrates its most famous agricultural product and the farmers who produce this enduring symbol of Chilton County.

The Friday night portion of Peach Jam will include a gospel music theme from the stage in Ollie Park. The Saturday main event will be headlined by a major country music recording artist complimented by a very popular rock and roll tribute band. The Peach Jam Jubilee will also feature local “Chilton’s Got Talent” performances for finalists selected during preliminary competitions.

Leading up to the musical portion of the Peach Jam Jubilee, the Chilton County Chamber of Commerce will sponsor more than 150 arts and crafts and other vendors in Ollie Park. The venue will include a Farmer’s Market and numerous food options to satisfy every appetite.

Look for additional information on the 2024 Peach Festival and Peach Jam Jubilee in the coming weeks. Make plans to be a part of our annual tribute to our most famous fruit and the growers who produce the product that makes Chilton County the Peach Capital of Alabama. Let’s make “Everything Peachy” in Chilton County for the 2024 Peach Festival.
