EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - After being canceled because of the pandemic, The West Side Nut Club Fall Festival is coming back in just a few weeks.

Officials say it will be the 100th year for the fall festival on West Franklin Street, and there will be rides, food and a half pot drawing.

Officials also say they will be working with the health department to make sure everyone who visits is kept safe as much as possible from Covid exposures.

Publicity Chairman, Ryan Beck says, “We know the health department is going to be very involved with our food booths this year to make sure they are following the CDC guidelines and the health department guidelines. We have had 500 gallons of hand sanitizer donated so we are going to be setting up hand sanitizer stations up and down the street as well.”

To kick off the 100th year, Sunday September 19 at 3 p.m. they will be burying a time capsule at Evansville Library West.

That event is open to the public.

Nut Club officials also say pre-sale ride wristbands go on sale Saturday, September 18.

People can save $5.00 per wristband with a voucher, which are available at Schnucks, Donut Bank, and Old National Bank Locations.
