Description:

From Peanut Butter Festival Website:

Come back to the way it used to be
the last Saturday in October

On the last Saturday in October, the town of Brundidge pays tribute the foodstuff that sustained it during the Great Depression and to the little nut that continues to provide a giant boost to the local economy with the annual Peanut Butter Festival harvest and heritage celebration.

Brundidge had two of the earliest peanut butter mills in the Southeast, the Johnston Peanut Butter Mill in the downtown area and the Louis-Anne Peanut Butter Company on the south edge of town. Both mills were at full production during the early 1930s and peanut butter was made continually in Brundidge until the 1960s.

The Peanut Butter Festival gets underway at the crack of dawn with the 5K Peanut Butter Run and continues until dark catches us with non-stop entertainment, the Peanut Butter Recipe Contest, the Peanut Butter Kids Contest, old-time demonstrations, games and contests, the construction of Alabama's Largest PB&J Sandwich, exhibits, a George Washington Carver presentation, arts, crafts, food and everything peanut butter, the Nutter Butter Parade of nutty people and nutty things and a street dance under the stars.
