Peach Days History
    This Labor Day weekend, September 3rd and 4th,
will be the 12th annual celebration of Peach Days.
However, Peach Days really began a long time ago. It
is an integral part of Hurricane’s history. What began
as a Fruit Festival in 1909 would evolve into the Peach
Days and eventually the Washington County Fair.

the life blood of the valley: water, the farmers were
able to begin planting. Water was available as early as 1906, but not until 1908 did it reach the South Fields.
Several thousand Elberta peach trees were purchased and planted by the valley’s newly formed “commercial
club” in 1908. They battled many hungry rabbits as they nurtured these baby trees along. Frank Barber, an
experienced nursery man from Centerville, Utah came to Hurricane in January 1907 and began cracking peach
pits which he planted in the spring. He organized the Hurricane Nursery Company (later the Dixie Fruit and
Produce Company). Barber became involved in the commercial club and as the vice president organized the

fruits they had raised: Elberta peaches, grapes, and melons. The produce was judged and then those attending
the “Fruit Festival” all helped eat the scrumptious display.
     The second year (1910) the Festival expanded and invited outsiders to share in Hurricane’s wealth. The
Hurricane residents and guests shared a meal, then moved to the Social Hall to view the fruit displays. It was

anywhere”. Equal praise was given to the grapes, melons and other fruits (except for the apples which were
a little wormy). After the judging and prizes, the crowd once again ate the delicious fruits. The days festivities
were rounded off with a baseball game and a dance at the town square (now Heritage Park and Hurricane

Community Center).
    From these humble beginnings the fruit festival grew into a two day event with roping contests, foot races,
horse races, bronco riding, steer wrestling, baseball, dancing parties and cantatas. The fruit was still the center
of the event and on the afternoon of the second day the melons were cut and everyone ate the fruit display.

originally called Elberta Days, and in 1915 the name was changed to Peach Days. Exciting things happened
at Peach Days, like in 1916 when Mr. Fox brought his automobile to the celebration and charged 10 cents

had livestock and poultry exhibits, agricultural and horticultural displays, and various entertainments. It had
achieved county fair status. At this time the county wanted to hold this fair annually and alternate among the
towns of the county. The suggestion to hold it in St. George the next year was made, but the 1930 festival was
again in Hurricane, and there it was to remain. In 1951 the name was changed to the Washington County Fair.
County commissioners asked Hurricane to make this the county fair celebration because of its great success.
   The fair grew bigger and bigger. By the 1970s seed displays and agricultural exhibits were held in the old
high school gym, and home arts exhibits were in the elementary multi-purpose room. During the 1980s it
was expanded over a couple of city blocks. Home arts and baked and bottled goods were displayed in the
new Hurricane High School’s gym and other parts of the building. Commercial booths lined the street along
100 south to Hurricane Elementary where in the old gym were seed and agricultural displays. Food booths
were nestled along the street under the shade trees of the Elementary. At least three Continuous Entertainment
stages were set up. One on the new High School Lawn, one among the booths along 100 south, and another
on the lawn at the elementary. The carnival was set up over the years in various places (football or practice

rodeo at the American Legion Rodeo Grounds. Dances were held (a teenager’s dance and a country dance)
at the old tennis courts, and the American Legion patio. The music could be heard all over the downtown and
nearby residential area. Two parades were held: a children’s parade on Friday evening, and a general parade
on Saturday morning.
    Remodeling at Hurricane High School caused the County Fair to be moved to the new Hurricane Middle
School in the early 1990s. It was much more cramped and congested there and only lasted a few years before
the new fair grounds were built at the Washington County Regional Park, and the Washington County Fair was
moved to these new facilities.
      Hurricane residents missed the small town celebration that had grown so large and moved from the


and 4th, 1999. It was a huge success, with even its critics admitting it was a wonderful event. The community
feeling of unity was back. Fond memories of days gone by were relived, and new memories were made.
The goal of the board and committees has been to keep Peach Days a smaller hometown event without an

elementary grounds. The old High School was torn down in 2004, so the layout was changed and expanded
to the Elementary building, but the events and displays are still much the same.
    Whether you are a native to the area or a transplant, Peach Days will give you a great sense of community
and appreciation for our pioneer heritage. You can walk through the elementary gym or Fine Arts building and
view various handiwork, garden and art displays. You may want to attend the craft show, or wander through
pioneer corner and learn about the crafts and skills our pioneer ancestors passed down. Kids will enjoy the
kiddy carnival, Pioneer Games and Candy Cannon. Be sure to grab a bite to eat at the food booths lining the
street in front of the Community Center and relax under the shade as you listen to some local talent at the
continuous entertainment. Don’t miss the parade Saturday morning or the old fashioned rodeo Saturday night
or “Come See Our Valley” on Thursday, Friday and Saturday for some great entertainment.
     Hurricane has a great heritage to celebrate. Be sure to celebrate with us this year at Hurricane Peach
Days.

              New This Year!
 This year’s Peach Days will enjoy the traditional
 events of the past, but is happy to add one
 new event. The Hurricane Pediatric Dentistry
 is sponsoring a movie night! This will be held
 Friday evening on the grass area next to our
 new Pickleball courts. (Just west of the Fine
 Arts Building.) The movie will begin at dusk –
 around 8:30. Bring your own lawn chairs or a big
 blanket. The food booths will be open making
 it possible to bring food or refreshment with
 you and your family to enjoy while watching
 the movie.
 Also new this year will be the prize money for
 the displays. In the past only the top three in
 the area won prize money. This year the prize
 money has been expanded. All sweepstakes
 ribbons will get a cash prize of $15. This way
 more people will be able to enjoy a cash prize.                                         Spaghetti Eating Contest

Guild
 Zion Piecemakers Quilt Guild is pleased
 to present their annual quilt show. The
 big change this year is the location:
 the quilt show will be across the street
 in the Hurricane Community Center
 in the classrooms on the North side
 of the building. As usual, the show is
 not a judged show; instead, ribbons
 are awarded for viewer’s choice, so be
 sure to vote for your favorite quilt. The
 theme for this year’s challenge is “Black
 and White plus One.” Each quilter was
 given identical pieces of black and white
 fabrics, plus one piece of a colored
 fabric. The challenge is to make a small
 quilt using only these three colors.

 The 2011 Opportunity Quilt, “Homespun                     Zion Piecemakers Quilt Guild meets
 Holidays” is a combined effort by members                 monthly on the second Thursday of each
 of the quilt guild. Twenty members pieced                 month at 6:00 p.m. at the Hurricane

“Time Out” is a singing group that loves to entertain and does
much around the area. They are Dallas and Judy Mangum,
Ann Horlacher and DeAnna Berger. The name “Time Out”
came about because they take time out from busy lives to get
together and make music for others to enjoy. They have per-
formed at Peach Days for a number of years and look forward
to being here again this year. Enjoy Time Out’s performance
on Saturday at 8:0 p.m. on stage one.

 pany themselves on guitars and banjo, and will sing a variety of
 country and easy listening numbers both as a group and solos.

                                        “Way Off Broads” is a group of local ladies who love to sing
                                        “for fun“. The group includes Alicelyn Jaques, Renee Garner,
                                        Liz Ebert, Tylia Jackman, Wanda Despain, and June Jeffery. The

                                        Magic” performance in 2008 (but it stuck). Though known for
                                        music that is lighthearted and fun, the ladies enjoy performing
                                        some serious music as well. During weekly rehearsals, “Some-

                                        therapy for all of us to get together and make music.” Since that
formal beginning in 2008, they have performed three different years at Hurricane City’s Concerts in the
Park, the Southern Utah Renaissance Faire, Dicken’s Fest in St. George, the annual Lin’s Holiday Open
House, and at local businesses, church parties, and book clubs

         	
       	
 has been together for a couple of
years. They are the house band for the Saint George
Elks Lodge and play there every Wednesday night.
They play often around the Saint George area. Frank

by Haggard, Waylon, Cash, and others. Available for
