About This Event:
The 61st annual Black Walnut Festival is coming soon. This 3-day event is jam packed with all of the usual fall festival activities including a carnival and parade, but unlike other festivals the Black Walnut Festival has strong roots in the community’s history with black walnuts. Stockton is known for producing more black walnuts than anywhere else. To celebrate this they host events like crowning the Black Walnut Festival Queen, judging a contest to find the best black walnuts and a “nut roll” where attendees of the event can purchase a ball to represent the black walnut to be dropped down a hill for a chance to win prizes.
