Nothing says "southern Indiana" like persimmon pudding

Persimmon pudding is a longstanding southern Indiana tradition – after all, this is the 72nd Annual Persimmon Festival! The main event of the festival is always the persimmon pudding recipe contest. Last year’s winner used buttermilk, 1/2 and 1/2, butter, eggs, cinnamon and a few other important ingredients. In fact, one past winner appeared on NBC’s Today show to bake pudding! Other highlights include candlelight tour through Springmill State Park’s historic village and the Grand Parade, one of Indiana’s largest, and a variety of musical acts. This year’s Grand Marshals will be local Veterinaries and our theme is “Persimmon City Harvest, Celebrating Farmers & Agriculture.

Don't miss this year's festival September 22 - 29!
