Response to COVID-19

6/11/20. The Board of Trustees of the National Peanut Festival continues to plan for the Festival and the events prior to including the Little Miss National and Miss National Peanut Festival Pageants. There are no scheduled changes to any events relating to the Festival at this time.
The Board of Trustees, along with local authorities and the help of its over 400 volunteers, are working to plan for a safe environment for the over 200,000 patrons that attend the event each year. We will work along side our carnival provider, Reithoffer Shows and other vendors to meet the necessary safety protocols while still offering the patron a fun-filled time as we honor the Agriculture Community with an emphasis on the Peanut!

The National Peanut Festival has taken enhanced health and safety measures for you, our patrons, volunteers and employees. You must follow posted instructions while visiting the National Peanut Festival and/or any event held at or in conjunction with the National Peanut Festival.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control, senior citizens and patrons with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
By purchasing a ticket, entering this facility and/or attending any event in conjunction with the National Peanut Festival, you voluntarily assume all the risks related to COVID-19.
The Board of Trustees also reserves the right to delay/amend/cancel events as it may become necessary.
For more information as it becomes available, please refer to this website.
