Each year the Newberry Watermelon Festival committee works hard to deliver and fun filled festival and activities. The watermelons are always provided from a local grower and given to the festival goers for FREE.

We have beauty pageants for ages 0-22 years. Our pageants are held at the Newberry Oak View Middle School Auditorium.
Some of the favorite festival activities started many years ago and still continue today. These activities include contests for watermelon eating, seed spitting, hog calling, pie/cake baking, and the highly coveted “Big Melon” contest.
