Best Tastin' Watermelons of the carolinas' contest

Join the Watermelon Challenge!

Are you a farmer that grows watermelons in North or South Carolina? Do you enjoy friendly quality crop competitions between you and your neighbors? Do you grow watermelons in your garden or on your farm?  If you answered YES to any of these questions, then you will enjoy participating in the North Carolina Watermelon Festival Watermelon Contests.

The North Carolina Watermelon Festival of Fair Bluff is in the process of preparing for its upcoming 31st anniversary which will be celebrated festival weekend on July 23, 2016.  

The actual contests being held on July 23, 2016. One of the most historical highlights of the festival is the annual watermelon taste and size contests.

For the sixth year in a row, the NC Watermelon Festival will proudly accept watermelons grown from any part of the state in North Carolina or South Carolina. This is because the North Carolina Watermelon Festival is seeking the best tasting watermelon grown in the Carolinas. In other words, the North Carolina Watermelon Festival Watermelon Committee has given a challenge to all farmers from all parts of the Carolinas to see which state, North Carolina or South Carolina, can have bragging rights to grow the best tasting and best looking watermelons. Growers are encouraged to contact their local extension agent or seed dealer for the best tasting and looking watermelon varieties to make sure they have the ultimate bragging rights.

Any grower who has any questions or would like a pre-registration form to be mailed to them may contact Chandler Worley at 910-207-1698
