The Louisiana Peach Festival is the longest-continuing festival in the state. The festival is produced by the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce the 4th weekend in June each year. Ruston is known for two main items: Louisiana Tech University and sweet peaches.
Located along Interstate 20 in the middle of north Louisiana, this is a festival location that is an easy drive from Dallas/Ft. Worth; Little Rock; Jackson, Mississippi; or the New Orleans area.
