DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — The most highly anticipated fall event in the Wiregrass National Peanut Festival will happen this year!

Each year except for 2020 the festival attracts thousands of fairgoers from throughout the Wiregrass region and all over the state.

Of course last year, the festival had to be canceled because of COVID, but this year between November 5-14th it will be in full swing.

You can expect more rides, more acts, and vendors, plus a cattle show. National Peanut Festival President Joe Snell says they are working to make this year’s fair the best ever after missing out last year.

“If you don’t come out and enjoy it is not our fault,” Snell said. “Because we are here to please and we want to make you feel at home because this a place where a lot of people cant go to Disney World, so this is their Disney World and we realize that so we want to try to accommodate people.”

Snell asks that if you haven’t already, please get your COVID vaccine shot so you can protect yourself and everyone else at the fair and not spoil the fun for anyone this year.
