In the 1930s, Brundidge, Alabama was home to a thriving peanut butter business. The thick, sweet concoction was shipped to stores all across the U.S. In 1991 this homegrown product became the centerpiece for a festival that attracts folks from all over the state.
Season to Taste takes you to the Brundidge Peanut Butter Festival, a free event held the last Saturday in October. It features a parade, recipe contests, and a 5K Peanut Butter Run that approximates the route taken by peanut wagons as they hauled their produce to market more than half a century ago.
Add to that fried, boiled, parched and raw peanuts, arts and crafts, and Alabama’s largest peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Bring the family, enjoy the entertainment, and taste the best homemade peanut butter this side of the Chattahoochee.
