2014 Dates Announced!

Dates for the 2014 Arizona Watermelon Festival have been announced! We will be coming back to the City of Glendale, AZ for two days! The 2014 Watermelon Festival will be held at Murphy Park, in Historic Downtown Glendale, Saturday, June 7th and Sunday June 8th. Please check back soon for more updates!

The Watermelon Festival finds its roots reaching back to 1949 in Glendale, AZ. A celebration of the agricultural achievements of Glendale melon growers, the popular summer event once drew annual crowds of up to 40,000 people who were served more than 80,000 pounds of watermelon. The 2013 Watermelon Festival revived this tradition in Glendale's Murphy Park. Maintaining much of the traditional integrity of the original events, the 2013 Watermelon Festival featured a crowned Miss Arizona Festival Queen along with a multitude of watermelon-centric activities and games to entertain the whole family.  On June 7th and 8th of 2014, the tradition continues; this year with 2 days and an even more robust line up!
