63rd Annual Watermelon Festival

For over half a century, visitors from miles away have come to Chiefland to enjoy our Watermelon Festival. Visitors to this area will enjoy a parade, craft show, pageants, and watermelon eating and seed spitting contests. Last year’s event drew over 3,000 people to Chiefland.

The Chiefland Woman’s Club is a non-profit organization giving money from last year’s event to Haven Hospice, Levy Educational Foundation, Harmony Pregnancy Center, Tri-County Community Resources, Chiefland Elementary School, Chiefland Middle High School, and local boys and girls during the holidays.

The Chiefland Woman’s Club is seeking sponsors for this year’s festival. All contributions are tax deductible and are greatly appreciated. Should you have any questions concerning the event or sponsorships, please contact Melanie King Hutchison at (352) 493-2221 or (352) 535-5129. You can also email to melliek71@hotmail.com. Visit us online at chieflandwomansclub.org.

Please mail your sponsorship to PO Box 1211, Chiefland, FL 32644, marking the envelope Festival Sponsorship.

We thank you in advance for your continued support of local community events.

Warmest Regards,

Melanie King Hutchison
Chiefland Woman’s Club
