Heartnut Festival 2017


 September 9, 2017

Johnson County Park

The Heartnut Festival is an annual heritage celebration of the history of Indiana and a little known nut tree called the Heartnut tree. Although it is native to Japan, the Heartnut is considered to be a variant of a walnut grown in Japan that grows well in the fertile soils of Indiana. It receives its name from the Valentine heart-shaped nuts it produces. The flavor is compared to be mildly walnut in character with no bitterness.

 

2017 marks the 32nd year for the Heartnut Festival that brings a historical pre-1840 living encampment with re-enactors camping in the lifestyle of the time. The Heartnut Festival celebrates the culture of life in early Indiana with home and hand craft vendors, musicians, kids activities, delicious food, miniature train and pony rides, and more at the Johnson County Park in Nineveh, Indiana. The festival is free and offers a fun filled day for a family friendly outing!
