Chiefland Watermelon Festival and Tour De Melon

Add To Trip Planner

Come out and celebrate our watermelon harvest at Chiefland`s Annual Watermelon Festival! There will be a parade and pageant, free samples of the area`s fresh delicious chilled watermelon and a variety of fresh local food, arts and crafts and other vendors.

In conjunction with the Chiefland Watermelon Festival, the annual Tour de Melon, a cycling event for everyone from the seasoned cyclist to families and young children, leads visitors on trail rides through the Nature Coast from 18 to 100 miles long! A leisurely ride is a delightful introduction to the hidden gems and beautiful scenery as much as it is a cycling opportunity. After the ride, participants can refresh themselves with watermelon and a stroll through the festival.
