When exploring small towns, you should expect anything–and when it comes to the Rockport, Indiana Annual Christmas Program, you should expect amazing!

Located at the beautiful Spencer County Courthouse, THIS is how to usher in Christmas!

Our program said “local talent” and, if you are anything like me, you may have cringed slightly at that statement. However–I was completely blown away by the musical prowess of the people who live in this tiny Indiana town.

Located inside the basement of the courthouse, this is an awesome space. Once used as a meeting place for teachers back in the 1920’s, it is in its original condition, vintage chairs, stage, and all!

Now it’s main purpose is to hold the annual Rockport Christmas Program two days out of the year.

Men dressed up in a coat and tie just adds to that whole festive feeling. Well, except for us–we spent the afternoon exploring Rockport’s great outdoors and probably looked a little worse for the wear!

For the Saturday night performance, you can catch the Spencer County Community Band playing in the beautiful courthouse. While you would think it would sound horrible (all those echoing sounds), I have heard it is a surprisingly wonderful space to hear music!

Santa also takes tickets. Due to a late dinner, we had to switch to Sunday’s Matinee so we missed out on the Santa part unfortunately. Even so, the Spencer County Courthouse was a very bustling place!

You know what I hope? I hope that after seeing this article, that you’ll plan on purchasing tickets in advance–and get them to put on more than just two shows.

Talent this amazing needs to be shared–and two days aren’t enough! I didn’t expect to be completely awed by vocal performers and musicians! Our kids thoroughly enjoyed it. Make it a Christmas tradition in your family, too.
