Get Ready for a Day of Seed Spittin’, Celebratin’ and Small-Town Fun!

The Hempstead Watermelon Festival is two days of festivities in honor of the crop that made our town famous! Join us July 19-20, 2024 for a family-friendly event that’s got something for absolutely everyone. It’s toe-tappin’ entertainment and awesome eats. It’s antique cars and old-time parades. It’s can’t-miss shopping, games for the kiddos and all sorts of other fun to boot. (In other words, it’s somethin’ you won’t wanna miss!)

So, mark your calendars July 19 – 20, 2024, gather your buddies and get ready to celebrate BIG! Because you know we love a good party here in Hempstead.
