48th Annual Hope Watermelon Festival

August 8 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Watermelons have long been a calling card for the City of Hope.

The Hope Watermelon festival features numerous activities including arts & crafts, food, entertainment and other family-oriented activities. Local civic clubs hold dinners featuring such down-home fare as smokey pulled pork and golden fried catfish. What else can you do at the festival? You can participate in a 5k race, participate in Watermelon Olympics, enter the “Watermelon Idol” talent contest, browse the car show, and have a blast in the Kidz Zone.
