The South Dakota Peach Festival will again feature the World’s Largest Peach Cobbler, during its two-day event June15-16 at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds in Sioux Falls.
All attending the South Dakota Peach Festival may sample some of the cobbler.
The cobbler measures 11 feet long and five feet wide, with a depth of about eight inches. It is made using 90 pounds of butter, 150 pounds of sugar, 150 pounds of flour, 32 gallons of milk, and 75 gallons of Georgia peaches.
The cobbler is made by Rich Bennett and his team of volunteer bakers. Bennett spends hours preparing the custom-built oven and putting ingredients together to make an old-fashioned peach cobbler from scratch.
The South Dakota Peach Festival will also feature live music, including South Dakota’s own country music star Hailey Steele and Night Shield. Team FMX, a freestyle motocross stunt show, will perform three times each day. On Sunday there is a Father’s Day classic car show.
The festival is done in a carnival type format, with other entertainment such as inflatables and games, vendors, and peaches. For more information, visit southdakotapeachfestival.com.
