Wilbraham Peach Festival
August celebration of the local peach harvest includes a wide
variety of food and entertainment, a parade featuring the year's
Peach Queen and court, a classic car cruise, a five-mile road race,
and a fireworks extravaganza. Artists and craftsmen display their
work alongside exhibits by local businesses and civic groups. All
proceeds from the volunteer-run event fund local community projects
and scholarships for area students.
