Bluffton Boiled

Peanut Festival.

Go Nuts!

Because... why not?

the Bluffton Boiled Peanut Festival

The Boiled Peanut cook-off was the brain child of local Blufftonians Jared Jester and Hannah Parrish. From its beginnings at the Bluffton Farmer's Market, the event has grown in notoriety and is now a large community family-centric event. 

The Cook-Off features the best Boiled Peanuts, both traditional and creative.

This year we are heading back to our roots. We have decided to move the festival back to Calhoun St to focus more on the Nuttiness of the Boiled Peanut Cook-Off and other festival Contests.

Stay Tuned for more information. We can't wait to get Nutty with you!

The Cook-off

The Seventh Annual Lowcountry Boiled Peanut Cook-Off is going to be bigger and better than ever before!


This year there will be three Peanut categories Traditional and Creative, Best Overall, and back by popular demand, Crowd Favorite.

If boiling the peanuts is not your thing, there will be boiled peanut eating competition.  We will do this contest as demanded.

Community members, restaurants, bakeries, home cooks, and artisan boilers - everyone is welcome to enter so throw your hats in the ring and see what happens!
