Watermelon Park has a reputation for being the home of many great and historical music events. The first “Bluegrass Day” was held on August 10, 1960. This is believed to be the very first Bluegrass Festival in the country! This rich history and tradition continues today at our annual Watermelon Park Fest! Held on the fourth weekend in September. This great event is brought to you by Shepherd’s Ford Productions & Watermelon Park.

Watermelon Park is a great outdoor venue for hosting Weddings & Receptions, Family Reunions, Company Picnics, Church & Civic Groups, Team Building workshops, Chamber of Commerce Events, Sports team outings, parties and celebrations and much more!
