MITCHELL PERSIMMON FESTIVAL

AWARDED #1 FOOD FESTIVAL IN INDIANA BY NATIONAL GEOPRAPHIC!

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!
