73rd Mitchell Persimmon Festival
September 23rd @ 9:00 am - September 28th @ 7:30 pm EDT
For those of you that don’t know what a Persimmon is… well, it’s hard to explain. It’s a small, orange fruit. Describing what it tastes like is almost impossible, but the community of Lawrence County has mastered the art of making this strange little fruit taste amazing in so many ways. You will just have to come to the festival to find out for yourself. Try some of the local favorites, such as, persimmon pudding and persimmon ice cream!
Don’t forget to check out the Candlelight Tour at Spring Mill State Park on Saturday, September 21.
We are excited to invite you to the Mitchell Persimmon Festival! This year’s theme is Mitchell, Around the World. Mitchell, Around The World, hopes to honor and spotlight Mitchell community members who have brought a little taste of “Mitchell’s Hoosier Hospitality” all across the globe, as well as those who have traveled from all corners of the planet to make Mitchell their hometown! The Persimmon Festival will feature food vendors, carnival rides, games and free live entertainment nightly featuring festival favorites The Endless Summer Band on Friday September 27th and the nation’s number one tribute to KISS, Mr. Speed on Thursday September 26th. The festival’s Grand Parade will be held Saturday September 28th at 2:00 pm.
