The 101st annual West Side Nut Club on Franklin Street in Evansville is in the books and from what I've been by a few people who work for local non-profits that had booths on-site during the week, this year's event was a huge success. There's no doubt the gorgeous weather throughout the entire week was a huge part of that as thousands of people made their way to the festival to enjoy the sunny days and cool nights while chowing down on the hundreds of food items available. For the Nut Club, the end of one festival means the start of planning for the next one. That includes locking in many of those booths and even some new ones.

West Side Nut Club Accepting Booth Applications for the 2023 Fall Festival

Earlier this week, the Club announced on Twitter it currently has spaces available for non-profits and other not-for-profit organizations interested in having a booth on Franklin Street during next year's festival. The post includes a link to an online form asking for contact information, the name of the organization along with a space to show proof of its non-profit status, as well as the type of products that will be sold from the booth.

As it has for many years, the 101st Fall Festival featured over 130 booths selling everything from pronto pups and strombolis, to donut burgers, pork chops on sticks, and a huge variety of deep-fried items like s'mores, empanadas, cheese sticks, funnel cakes, and more.

The 102nd edition of the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival is set for October 2nd through the 7th, 2023.
