It is held annually in early autumn on the banks of the Wabash River, four miles southwest of West Lafayette, Indiana.
Thousands of participants re-enact this event creating a feast for your senses. Smell the wood smoke, hear the report of the rifles, savor authentic food and more.”

Bellinger’s Professional Grounds Maintenance Fall Tree Fest
October 15 – 17 & 22-23
Here’s a little something different! Do you have a game plan for your home landscaping and ground maintenance that includes trees? This annual sale comes around once a year. Bellinger’s is the place to help you learn more about what will work for you and your specific plan and yard!
Here’s why the sale is right now!
“Trees are best dug when dormant. When planted in the fall, the roots have the entire winter to acclimate to their new surroundings. This is because roots do not go dormant as quickly as the top of the tree. Therefore, fall planting allows minor root establishment before the next growing season. However, some trees must be dug in the spring; due to the roots and their ability to establish.”– Bellinger’s Website
Click here for hours of the sale and any additional information! At this sale you’ll, “Choose and tag your trees right in the field where they are grown. Trees will then be dug when the conditions are appropriate for each individual tree. Delivery and installation are available and also on SALE! Planting and Care instructions are provided with each tree purchase.”
