members of the Leesville Merchants Association flocked together to hatch the concept of a town festival. It was Sara Shealy, famous throughout the region for eggs-traordinary fried chicken served in her Batesburg-Leesville restaurant, who courageously proposed the
development of a Poultry Festival for the Lexington County community. After
much clucking and crowing, the head rooster called for a vote and the Poultry
Festival was hatched.
What better theme to spotlight the largest agri-business in South Carolina –
a $1 BILLION industry that employs thousands in production, processing,
marketing of eggs, broilers, turkeys, pigeons, quail and spring chickens!
Lexington County; home of Columbia Farms, Saluda County, headquarters
of Amick Farms and Gentry’s Poultry Company, and Aiken County are
among the state’s top broiler producers.
The first festival, staged in 1987 called the Ridge Poultry Festival, attracted over
20,000 visitors to the Twin Cities. In 1989, the event, experiencing growing pains changed its name to the South Carolina Poultry Festival to mirror the stampede of Palmetto State citizens who streamed into the town to partake of food, fun, music, crafts, and fireworks. Festival goers have clucked together through the ensuring eggs-travaganza and have packed the weekend population of Batesburg-Leesville to 100,000 plus!!!

The 56th Festival: Things to Know
The 56th Lexington County Peach Festival will be held July 4, 2014 in Gilbert, SC. The festival takes place in the Gilbert Community Park located on Rikard Circle behind Gilbert United Methodist Church and between Gilbert Primary and Gilbert Middle Schools.

For 56 years, the Town of Gilbert has hosted the Lexington County Peach Festival, and it is recognized as one of the most successful and prestigious events of its kind in the southeast United States. Summer after summer in the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, the community was alive with the harvesting, packing, and shipping of peaches. Today, while we find only a few peach farms still in operation, the peach remains (in our minds) the “Queen of all Fruits” and worthy of “honor” in our small town.
The Lexington County Peach Festival is held every year on July 4th (or July 3rd if the 4th is on a Sunday) in Gilbert, SC at the Gilbert Community Park. Festivities kick off every year with the parade at 9:30 am and stretch into the night until 10:00 pm when we bring the day to a close with a dazzling display of fireworks. We hope you plan to spend July 4th with us in Gilbert as you enjoy the live entertainment, parade, over 100 Art & Craft Exhibits, an antique car show, a Revolutionary War Re-enactment, a tractor show, children’s rides, and numerous food items specializing in “Peachy” delights! A student Peachy Art Contest held in May at the various schools and the various divisions of the Peach Pageants scheduled for June 28 are events also held in conjunction with the Peach Festival.
