Pecan Harvest Festival
Mark Your Calendar for this year ... November 5, 2022
2021 Tried to Hold us Back ... But we were strong
Weather Not so Good ... Spirit was High !!!
The Pecan Festival Queen's Luncheon on Friday was well attended and a perfect venue for us to crown our Festival Queen, Pamela Young-Jacobs, and introduce our lovely Pecan Belles. Our sincere thanks to both for representing our Harvest Festival with grace and flair. (Check our website for pictures) The meal provided by the Whiteville Woman's Civic League was, as always, the best of Southern cooking. On Saturday the Pecan Festival Parade kicked off on time. Music by the Whiteville High School Band and the float with our Queen and Belles were the high lights. Unfortunately the weather held back many of our craft vendors Saturday afternoon, but those that stuck with us found a good crowd browsing their booths. The weather also put a damper on our entertainment. Floodwater Connection bravely stuck it out for a shortened show, and sent everyone home humming a favorite tune.
We sincerely thank our major sponsors for their support.
These businesses made the NC Pecan Harvest Festival happen.
