It was a beautiful day for a festival in Niagara!  You could even say it was just peachy!!

The peach festival in Niagara On The Lake always brings a crowd.

Peach Festival 1

Not to mention, lots and lots of fresh peaches!

Peach Festival 9

Lots of entertainment.  This is The Ben Show.  Not only is he on a 10 foot tall unicycle.  He is also juggling….fire!  He really kept the crowd entertained!  Very funny guy :)

And then there is the food!

Peach Festival 2

The Epicurion was offering peach pie, peach cheesecake, peach soup, peach muffins and peach croissants.

That’s the Mr. waiting in the sun in a very long line to get a peach stuffed sausage with spicy peach glaze, while I stood under the shade tree!  They were also offering peach stuffed burgers, peach and prosciutto pizza and a host of other savoury peachy goodness.

Peach Festival 8

Kurtz Orchards were offering a huge variety of peachy sauces and salsas!  If you are ever in Niagara On The Lake this is a great shop to visit.  And, yes that is Santa Claus in the background.  Remember kiddo’s…he is always watching!  He was at the Christmas Store making his annual summer visit!

Peach Festival 4

This antique steam machine contraption thingy was pretty neat.  They were serving corn on the cob at this stop, and I think this was serving to cook it!

Peach Festival 7

Peach cupcakes and muffins!

Peach Festival 5

Greaves Jams is a fixture on Queen Street!  Today they were featuring their local peach jams, spreads and peach chutney.  All made locally with local ingredients!

And finally, the main reason for my visit to the Peach Festival…

Peach Festival 6

….to get me one of those giant peach scones (in the top right corner) from Nina’s Gelato!  Not to mention fresh peach gelato and peach sorbet!  This is only one of their pastry cases!  Heaven!

I have a feeling you will be seeing some peachy recipes on the blog coming up soon!

Enjoy your day!

    Woweeewwoowowow! We celebrate peach season in Texas, too, but NOT to this caliber. I would just explode with happiness if they had something like that close-by. All those pastries?! They are what dreams are made of. Thank you for sharing and also for making me feel (yet again) that I live in the wrong place. haha

    You are so lucky to live in that part of Canada…. I would definitely visit the peach festival too if we had one here! Everything looks so yummy!
