Winterville Watermelon Festival
The legendary Winterville Watermelon Festival is a multi‑day event featuring activities the whole family can enjoy. You can hear local and nationally known music acts throughout the event. One of the biggest events of the festival is the Watermelon Parade through town. The watermelon‑eating contest is a favorite! Festival‑goers young and old can enjoy carnival rides and midway games & check out the flea market and commercial vendors set up through the festival grounds. Food vendors serve both watermelon treats and classic fair food such as funnel cakes, turkey legs, and corn dogs.
