Earl Park, Indiana is the site of Earl Park Fall Festival that takes place over Labor Day weekend.

This Benton County festival probably one of the biggest festivals we’ve been to yet!

Driving near the area you can’t help but notice the giant billboard announcing the Earl Park Fall Festival. Know what else you can’t help but notice? The rows and rows of parked cars by Community Park! This place is just buzzing with activity.

Everyone is here. From one end of the (very) large park to the other, there’s always something going on!

This isn’t just a flea market type event. Sure, there’s plenty of fun booths to browse through, but there’s also a whole lot more.

They have loads of kid-sized carnival rides and games. Ever wanted to win a cute, fluffy bunny? Here’s your chance! Don’t you just wonder what the parents of the lucky kids say when they bring home a bunny?

There’s also daily events like a demo derby, tractor pull, mud volleyball, dodgeball, and good old-fashioned bluegrass music. The Festival Auto Show is held that Sunday during Labor Day weekend. They actually award trophies for the top 40 vehicles! Is that neat or what?

But a festival wouldn’t be a festival without food! Earl Park Fall Festival has the bases covered on that one. There are always some sponsored dinners, like the usual chicken dinner, fish fry, and hog roast.

But you won’t have to go without your lemon shake-ups or funnel cake. This Indiana town event has that, too.

We Hoosiers know how to get the celebration started!

I’ll have you know that I am totally prepared to drown my changing of the seasons sorrows in fair food at the Earl Park Fall Festival. After all, it will be a whole season before we get back to outdoor festivals and that yummy fried food.
