  • Pavo Peacock Day Festival

Come to the Peacock Festival and find out how the town of Pavo (the Latin word for peacock) got such an interesting name. This annual event is sponsored by the Pavo Civic Club and is held the second Saturday every May. New this year, a 1 mile fun run/walk for children 12 and under begins at 8:30 a.m. The festival begins at 9 a.m. with arts and crafts, food booths, and fun activities, including a pie eating contest, peacock calling, sack races and more. 

At 11 a.m., watch Pavo's mascot, Charlie the Peacock, strut through town as the star of the Peacock Day Parade. This year's Grand Marshal is Mr. Charles Hart. Each year, the Peacock Community Quilters carry on the tradition of donating a Peacock Quilt to be raffled during the event. Maybe you will be the lucky winner this year! Visit for more information.
