Welcome to the Fontanet Bean Dinner!

Join Us—  Friday July 28th & Saturday July 29th 2017

Each year Fontanet, IN enjoys the Annual Fontanet Bean Dinner Festival, a tradition stemming from a Civil War veterans’ picnic first held in 1890. The festival was originally held on land near the DuPont Powder Mill. After the mill exploded in 1907, the picnic moved to the site known as Holloway Grove, donated by local landowner Bill Holloway.
