Always Festive

NOTE: Many events scheduled in the spring and early summer of 2020 are being canceled or postponed. Please double check before planning to attend.

There are always great festivals and events happening in Festival Country Indiana, just south of Indy. We are your destination for music festivals, craft brew and wine festivals, and weekend festivals that check the box for “plenty of things to do with kids.”

So, if you’re looking for things to do this weekend, come to the place of festivals. Once you experience Festival Country Indiana, you'll want to return time and time again.
