    1. It is Mitchell, IN. 60 miles north of Louisville and 90 miles south of Indianapolis.

  1. Is there an opportunity to purchase persimmon pudding at this festival or to taste the persimmon pudding of the contestants?

    1. Bret, There will be several local vendors that supply persimmon pudding by the piece, 1/2 or whole puddings. As for the to taste the puddings of the contestants would not be possible as they bring one piece in to be judged, not the whole pudding. Unless you know someone who is entering that could save you a piece.

  2. Sorry, but the website is not user friendly… Wed, the 26th, Senior Day? What are the activities for Wed, the 26th? Also, what time is Entertainment and what is it? Thanks.

    1. Brenda, Sorry you are having a problem.

      *Senior Day, 1:00pm 9/26 at Main St Stage with live music and dancing in the streets; 4:30pm Italian Dinner in Food Tent; 5:00pm Carnival Rides; (Also many other food vendors); 6:00pm The Idigos brass Rock Band from Indy; 8:00pm Cody Ikerd and the Sidewinders. Close down at 10:00. The Methodist Church, First Baptist Church and Psi Betas serve food starting at 10:00am for Methodist and rest 11:00am.

      Have a great day.

  3. Would you e-mail me the dates for the 2020 Persimmon Festival so I can put it in my planner. I am assuming persimmon trees will be available for purchase.

    1. Hi Larry!
      The dates for the 2020 Festival are September 19-26, 2020. I’m not sure about persimmon trees.
      Please call the Chamber office at 812-849-4441 to find out if they will be available. There were
      no trees sold last year. Have a great day!
      Suzanne Patton

    1. Larry, It’s possible there will be persimmon trees for sale in 2021 at the 75th festival. The best source of up to date information is the Persimmon Festival Facebook page. Thanks! Suzanne

      1. A game like the old quarter game that was there for years. The one where you place a quarter on a colored square around the booth and someone throws a ball and if it lands on your color you get a prize.

  4. I was very disappointed to see a vendor selling Confederate flag merchandise in the commercial tent. The festival committee has full discretion on what they allow in that tent, and that was entirely inappropriate.

  5. Someone needs to make corrections on the recipes for the winners. The 2018 persimmon pudding recipe is a disaster as written. I believe it lacks flour. The 2017 persimmon pudding recipe lacks persimmons.

  6. hello. I am interested in being a commercial vendor in 2020 but i am not local, from Tennessee. I cant even decipher if you let vendors sell merchandise the website is so poorly designed and executed. I want everyone to be successful, and you will never build on your past success with this site. Seriously, if you are paying someone to design and maintain it-fire them. If not, hire someone. Im sure you could never imagine the people who don’t attend because they cant get clear, concise, pertinent info.
