Your body isn’t a temple, it’s a rollercoaster. And the best way to enjoy the ride is by filling yourself silly with the best fried and sugary sweets this life has to offer. If you agree, then you should check out Indiana’s West Side Nut Club Fall Festival, one of the largest street festivals in the United States.
This event is all about the munchies, and its roots date back to 1921. It’s long, rich history has made it a highly-anticipated event in the local community, but one that is open to everyone who enjoys eating for pleasure. Held every first full week of October, Franklin Street in Indiana becomes a hotspot for foodies of all stripes from both near and far. There will be over 130 food booths run by numerous non-profit organizations that rely on your appetite to raise money for charity, so come hungry because you’ll be eating for a good cause. And there will be more food varieties than you can shake a stick at, including unique fried treats and traditional comfort food.
‘For many, the Nut Club Fall Festival is pretty much what heaven looks like.’
For the best gastronomic experience, check out the festival’s Munchie Map so that you can plan your eating itinerary. Or should we say, eatinerary? Either way, you’ll want to come prepared because it’ll be food for miles!
Aside from tons of food, the event also features exciting events and attractions for the whole family. Rides, carnivals, parades, games, talent competitions, and more are just some of the activities planned out for festival goers of all ages each year.
