Best Fall Festival Signature Food Item

Choose Your Favorite Indiana Fall Festival Signature Food Item

The Hoosier State likes to eat. Our fall festival line-up is studded with celebrations of our favorite foods. But not just any old festival food could make the cut for this “Best Of” category. We wanted to showcase the items that are grown in or have a historical tie to our great state. Persimmon pudding weighs in from the South; blueberry ice cream comes out swinging for the North. Pumpkins, cider, chili, navy beans and more clamor for your vote. Check back on October 28 to find out which savory selection reigns supreme in this tasty contest.
