The first festival began in 1967 as part of a Centennial celebration.

Winona planned 4 different Festival Days, they were meant to cover the peak periods of the fruit growing seasons. The first was the Blossom Festival, held on Friday, May 19th @ the Winona High School. This is where the crowning of the Blossom Queen was held. The second festival was the Strawberry Festival held on Wednesday, June 21st at Winona Park. At the Strawberry Festival different organizations dressed in old time costume and served foods. Town Centennial Festival was held at Winona Park on July 1st. It started off with a parade, included musical performances, a carnival and ended with fireworks. There was also a dedication of the Park Entrance by the Women's Institute. The Festival of Fruit began on Friday August 18th and all day Saturday August 19th. Winona Road was closed between Hwy #8 and Barton Street. The road was painted peach, plus we had an outdoor market with a large assortment of fruits was set up. There was a street dance, entertainment, a buffalo roast and antique machinery. A baseball clinic was organized at Winona Public School, put on by the Buffalo Bisons. An Interdenominational Church service was held on Sunday June 25th in the park, combining the choirs and congregations of Christian Reformed, Ebenezer Reformed, St. John’s Anglican, Winona Gospel, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Wesley United and Fifty United. This tradition was carried in 1982 and 1983. The Centennial celebration began as four separate events, each being a one day event for many years but in 1977 grew into a three-day event and has always been held in Winona Park. Winona Peach Festival became incorporated in 1982.
