This summer is flying by in a hurry, and some popular Kennesaw events will be over before you know it. Don’t miss out on your chance to check out the farmers market and Dinner at the Depot, two of the most-loved events in town.
The Kennesaw Farmers Market, now in its ninth season, is bigger and better than ever. Taking place every Tuesday morning from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. through October, the farmers market is located in the Adams Park soccer field parking lot at 2753 Watts Drive. More than 30 local farmers and merchants offer fresh tomatoes, flowers, seasonal fruits and vegetables, baked goods, plants, herbs and a variety of local food and products. Be sure to get there early for the best selection! For more information or to become a vendor, call 770-499-0874.
Dinner at the Depot takes place in downtown Kennesaw every Monday evening, weather permitting, and features live music and a variety of delicious food truks. Dinner selections usually include Champion Cheese Steaks, Press for Time, The Pup Truck, Alisha’s BBQ, Buen Provecho, Cajun John’s, NaNa G’s Chicken and Waffles, King of Pops and more. Grab some food to go, or stay and enjoy the live music and have a picnic in the park. The event takes place in Depot Park on Cherokee Street from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Rounding out the summer events is this year’s Pigs and Peaches BBQ Festival. Held Friday, August 23 from 6 p.m. until 11 p.m. and Saturday, August 24 from 10 a.m. until 10 p.m., this event features plenty of great barbecued meats, as well as great desserts and live entertainment.

The festival features a Georgia State Championship Barbeque Cook-off, including more than $15,000 in cash and prizes in an event sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society. There will also be a non-sanctioned Backyard BBQ, Anything Butt and Peach Dessert contests. There will be live entertainment by the Lefty Williams Band, Seven Handle Circus, Rolling Nowhere and Slippery When Wet, as well as a fireworks display that will light up the night sky on Saturday at 9:30 p.m. The festival will be held at Adams Park and the Ben Robertson Community Center.
