67th Persimmon Festival

About 67th Persimmon Festival

Rich and sweet with a hint of cinnamon, persimmon pudding is a delightful, exotic treat for visitors to Mitchell's annual festival. This region of Indiana is known for growing persimmons and this Midwest delicacy has long tempted the palates of Lawrence county locals. Guests will also enjoy tried-and-true staples like midway rides, food booths, queen contest and a grand parade. The Persimmon Festival is staged annually the last full week of September.
