Since 1978, The Mississippi Watermelon Festival in Mize, MS has been hosted and sponsored every year in July by the Town of Mize Volunteer Fire Department. This year will mark the 36th anniversary of the festival. The festival is held at the Mize City Park in downtown Mize, MS. Mize is located in the southwest corner of Smith County along state highways 28 and 35, amid the pines, oaks, dogwoods and magnolias (not to mention kudzu) typical of South Central Mississippi.

All proceeds go to the Town of Mize Volunteer Fire Department. The festival is registered as a non-profit with the State of Mississippi, is all volunteer, and most of the volunteers are Fire Dept members and their familes.

If you are a regular, we'll see you there, if you've never been, well, there's plenty of shade and fun for the entire family. Bring your lawn chairs, sit a spell, sample some delicious, ripe, world famous Smith County melons and enjoy some down home southern hospitality. Ya'll come see us!
