About half of the peanuts grown in the US are grown within a 100 mile radius of Dothan, Alabama. The festivities include numerous fun-filled family events, such as amusement rides, animal acts, agricultural displays, live music concerts, beauty pageants, arts & crafts displays, contests, food, a two-hour parade, of course, tons of peanuts!

The festival began Oct. 30th, and runs through Nov. 8 at the Dothan Fairgrounds located on Highway 231 South — just three miles south of the Ross Clark Circle.
