Full Answer

Indiana's vast corn fields have inspired a festival tradition called Corn School, which occurs the first week of October annually. While it was originally conceived for young boys in local corn-growing schools, it has turned into a week-long festival that celebrates a variety of corn recipes and the crowning of a Corn School Queen.

Indiana also has dozens of u-pick apple orchards and fruit stands and is known for traditions of several kinds of apple butter and pastries.
