Beauregard Watermelon Festival

Make some melon memories with your crew this month by heading over to DeRidder for the annual Beauregard Watermelon Festival. From June 22-24, your family can sink their teeth into some of the best watermelons in the state. Along with the sweet treat, you and your family can enjoy carnival rides and live entertainment, spend time with the livestock, browse and shop through the craft vendors, play games, and quench your thirst (and hunger!) by visiting the food vendors. Before you head home, pop into the exhibit hall where you can learn all about the right way to plant this magical melon. The festival is held at the Beauregard Parish Fairgrounds.
