FESTIVAL FEATURES OHIO’S NATIVE FRUIT
The region’s most unique festival is full of learning experiences consistent with the Winding Road’s goal of sharing and stewarding the region’s story and assets. Ohio’s official native fruit, the paw paw, is the poor man’s bananna. Found wild this time of year in paw paw trees along the edge of the forest in southeastern Ohio, they are now grown for pulp used in Paw Paw beer, jellies, baked goods and even popsicles.
Three days of music, arts, children’s programming, local foods and contests are complimented by a full schedule of paw paw and sustainable living workshops in the Paw Paw Tent. See http://www.ohiopawpawfest. com/schedule for a daily schedule.
