There’s plenty of reason to celebrate at this year’s 53rd Annual Stonewall Peach JAMboree and Rodeo on Friday and Saturday, June 20-21.
Unlike last year, peaches are in good supply and Gillespie County growers are in the midst of harvesting the delicious and tasty fruit.
And while the growers are busy in their orchards and marketing their fruit, the Stonewall Chamber of Commerce has planned a two-day celebration that pays tribute to Gillespie County’s most famous crop.
Activities include a parade, two rodeo performances, dancing, baking contests, queen’s pageant, peach show and auction and more.
Activities are designed to entertain both young and old.
The gates open at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 20.
At that time, registration for the mutton busting begins. There is a $20 entry fee for the mutton busting, which is limited to the first 50 contestants.
