Persimmon Festival Committee Chairpersons:

Co-Chair – Bryan Fountain
77th General Chairperson – Aimee Phillips
Co-Chair – Katie Houchin

Each year brings a new chairperson that oversees the festival. That chairperson will have two co-chairs, one of which will step up to take place the following year. This cycle has continued for years, ensuring that new and fresh ideas are brought to the table to keep the Mitchell Persimmon Festival up and going!
Below you will find this year’s chairperson, the co-chairs and a list of the committee chairpersons. Everyone below is a person who has agreed to volunteer their time to make sure that the festival runs smoothly.
