July 28 - July 29
Annual Valliant Watermelon Festival
Nothing beats the heat in the thick of summer like a slice of juicy watermelon, and no town celebrates that simple truth like Valliant, where an annual Watermelon Festival is held each summer on the third Saturday in July.
By the slice or by the entire melon, the whole family is in for good, old-fashioned fun at the Valliant Watermelon Festival. Besides those fleshy slices of watermelon, there’s watermelon salsa, slushies and all kinds of other foods with your favorite summer fruit. Also, there are car shows, live music, a watermelon eating contest and a seed-spitting contest for a little friendly competition.
