It’s that time of year again – one of Arizona’s must-do experiences is here! The Peach Festival at Schnepf Farms will kick off on May 12th and run for two weekends.
Schnepf Farms is the largest peach grower in the state, but they didn’t start out that way. Their first festival in 1994 was supposed to last the entire weekend, however the orchards were picked clean in just an hour and a half! They have now expanded their orchards and planted more varieties of peaches to keep up with the demand of locals and visitors alike.
Take a day trip out to the farm for UPICK in the orchards, their Peachy Pancake Breakfast, fresh baked pies, and peachy cinnamon rolls. You can also enjoy their Peachy Sampling Pavilion where you can taste salsa, preserves, syrup, granola, licorice and more. Once you’ve had your fill of peaches, you can take a hay ride through the orchards, listen to live music, or have the kids hop on a carousel ride.
New to the Peach Festival this year is “Just Peachy” presented by Vintage Market Days®. This market will have over 150 vendors selling their beautiful vintage finds, architectural salvage, jewelry, clothing and more. An admission ticket is required for the “Just Peachy” market - $10 on Friday for early buying, $5 on Saturday and Sunday.
We want to see your peachy pictures! Tag #VisitMesa and #FreshFoodieTrail on your social media posts.
