This is truly an event that you won’t want to miss! Come with us, if you dare, through the spooky Pioneer Village. Volunteers decorate the entire village and turn it into a scary, haunted spectacle. Eerie creatures, ghosts and clowns with chainsaws are around every corner as you walk through the maze. 

ATTENTION: This is event is not recommended for children under 8 years old. Strobe lights will be present in the Village.

Check back for more information once the event is closer!

For those of you that are not from around this area, this will be the 73rd Annual Persimmon Festival in Mitchell, Indiana. For those of you that don’t know what a Persimmon is… well, it’s hard to explain. It’s a small, orange fruit, that many individuals describe as tasting “puckery”. That may not sound appealing, but the community of Mitchell and Lawrence County have mastered the art of making this strange little fruit taste amazing in so many ways. You will have to come and taste for yourself! We promise that you will have a blast!

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.

It’s hard not to have a good time when you go to the 4H Fair. Sure, the smell may not always be the best, but just imagine little kids running around with ice-cream covered faces, young children and teens standing with pride next to their prize-winning livestock, pigs squealing and chickens clucking along like they’re part of the crowd and watching parents give-in when their little ones beg, “Just one more fair ride before we go home, please!”

After all of that, it’s easy to forget the smell and just have fun.

This year’s event will include long time favorites such as, airbrush face painting, t-shirt tie-dying, inflatable games and obstacle courses, hot dogs and chips, ice cream, snow cones, popcorn, and much, much more. As always, admission, food, treats and all activities are completely free.
