Annual Boiled Peanut Festival



August 23rd 2014 12pm-5pm - State of Mind Street

Goober Peas

Boiled peanuts got their start as a folk cultural practice here in the Southern United States. When peanut crops would come in July and August, the unsold peanuts would be boiled. Family and friends would gather to share good converstion and food.

In 1899 Almeda Lambert published the first boiled peanut recipe. Goober peas, as they were originally called, have since become a staple of southern cuisine along with fried okra, barbecue and black-eyed peas.

The Town

Bluffton, South Carolina was founded in the 19th century and is best known for its historical significance. Through the years Bluffton has grown from its humble roots of one square mile while maintaining the small town feel.

The Boiled Peanut Cook-Off started at our local farmer's market just a few years ago and now draws thousands. Bluffton is also home to the Taste of Bluffton, Bluffton Village Festival, and the yearly Seafood and Arts Festival.

The Cook-Off

The Boiled Peanut cook-off was the brain child of local Blufftonians Jared Jester and Hannah Parrish. From its beginnings at the Bluffton Farmer's Market, the event has grown in notoriety and is now a large community family-centric event.

The Cook-Off features the best Boiled Peanuts, both traditional and creative.
