Johnny Appleseed Festival This Weekend09/17/2021 After a hiatus last year, the 46th Johnny Appleseed Festival returns this Saturday and Sunday. Hours are Saturday 10 to 6, Sunday 10 to 5 at Johnny Appleseed Park off Parnell Avenue. Return to the mid-1800s when John Chapman, aka Johnny Appleseed, traveled the region with a bag of apple seeds in one hand and a Bible in the other. See how pioneers lived, worked, ate and entertained. Visit the more than 100 period craft and food booths, learn from demonstrators, meet trappers and traders, hear music of the day on period instruments. Be sure to bring your family and friends to enjoy this educational step back in time….the 46th Johnny Appleseed Festival, an Indiana favorite.
