 Like Peanut Butter and Jelly, the Starks Mayhaw Festival and Spring go hand in hand. And speaking of jelly, this is the place for it! Mayhaw jelly, Mayhaw butter, Mayhaw berries and more—the Starks Mayhaw Festival has it all!

Festival goers can try their hand at jelly-making or try to catch a glimpse of the Mayhaw Queen and her court. With carnival rides, live music, delicious Southern food and enough berries and jelly to go around, the whole family will have something to celebrate!

Celebrating 25 years, the festival features carnival rides, arts & crafts, live music, delicious Southern food and enough berries and jelly for the whole family.  The festival kicks off on Thursday with a pirate theme costume contest at 6 p.m., followed by the talent show at 7:30 p.m. On Friday, the bike parade rolls at 3 p.m. and local gospel performers, including the Ball Brothers, will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Get your fill of biscuits, jelly and home-churned butter on Saturday, beginning at 8:30 a.m., followed by the highlight of the festival, the Mayhaw Jelly Contest at 10 a.m. The live auction will begin at 1 p.m. and live music acts will start at 4 p.m. Closing out the festival is the Cypress Band, featuring Warren Storm and Willie T, at 7:30 p.m.

No alcoholic beverages allowed on fairgrounds.
