WEATHERFORD, TX – Today marks the first day of Parker County Peach Week! Usually known as the “Parker County Peach Festival,” the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce had to switch the day-long event to become an all week celebration due to COVID-19 this year:
“If you live in Parker County, there’s no doubt that you recognize that the Peach Festival is a valued tradition in our community,” said Chamber President, Tammy Gazzola. “Although the Covid-19 pandemic has officially taken a bite out of this year’s Peach Festival due to the looming uncertainty surrounding mandates to limit large gatherings, the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce has decided to bite back by pivoting from a one-day large festival to an entire week of smaller peachy celebrations. The big one-day Parker County Peach Festival will be back in 2021 and even sweeter with additions added from this year’s week of peaches.”Parker County Peach Festival Press Release
