Melon Fest

Melon Festival at Ooltewah Farmers Market
Thursday, August 16th at 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

TICKETS ARE NOT REQUIRED. THIS IS A FREE COMMUNITY EVENT

Come and have yourself a mouth waterin', rind thumpin', seed spittin', lip smackin', juice running down your chin slice of summer! Tomatoes may be the king of summer, but a juicy sweet melon is surely summer's glory. We are celebrating melons of every shape and size! From watermelon, to cantaloupe, to honeydew, and more...we love every one! We will have a seed spitting contest (two categories: Adults or Kids), melon-themed music, line dancing (the watermelon crawl), and lots of watermelon-themed items like watermelon baked goods, popsicles, candy, and cookies. There will be watermelon jelly and jams, too. You will see some types of melons that you've never heard of before, and more! Bring some friends and some wet wipes, because this will be a sticky sweet good time!
