Watermelon Festival News 2021

After the terrible year we all had last year, and having to cancel the 47th Annual Grand Bay Watermelon Festival for 2020, we have consulted with the Mobile County Health Department, and with their guidance, the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Grand Bay Lodge #73 and the Martha Rebekah Lodge #29 have decided to hold this year’s 47th Annual Grand Bay Watermelon Festival that is scheduled for July 3, 2021 (since July 4th will be on Sunday).  We will be doing our part to make sure everything is as sanitary as possible, further distancing between vendors, and hope that you will feel safe to bring your family out to enjoy this year’s Grand Bay Watermelon Festival.  We do have to suggest 6 feet social distancing and frequent hand washing.  We plan to have several hand washing stations and hand sanitizer available.  We will not be having our Car Show this year.  And we will still need many volunteers to help!  Please stay safe and plan to come see us this year on July 3rd for our vendors, rides, entertainment, and some delicious, ice cold, sliced watermelon. May God bless you and our Country!
