This festival is held annually on Father’s Day Weekend in downtown North Judson and the North Judson Park. Activities include: Cooking with Mint contests, King & Queen Contest (may be changed in 2021 due to Covid), bands, midway rides, food, crafts, and bingo. There is a 5k run on Saturday and parade on Sunday and everything mint.
In 1976 North Judson, along with the rest of the US, celebrated the Bicentennial of the founding of our country with a festival. It was quite a party and so enjoyable that many people said, “We need to do this again.”
So they looked around for a theme and came up with the idea of showcasing mint since it is an unusual plant that will only thrive in certain areas. Our region is one of them.
The North Judson Mint Festival has been held on Father’s Day weekend for many years and, hopefully, for many more to come.
