Bored to Tears? Fabulous Festivals in Indiana This Weekend

Rensselaer Cruise Night
There are parades galore this weekend! This is from the 2015 Rensselaer Cruise Night last July.
Is there anything to do in Indiana this weekend? There’s always something to do in Indiana! You just needed a bit of help finding the festivals, events, marathons, and educational opportunities that run from one end of our fair state to the other.

That’s the thing about this website. Not only can you easily discover what is happening (and when), but you can find more detailed information about the events that I have personally visited by visiting the Festivals and Events tab underneath the “Play” category above.

If I left out your festival, I do apologize. It is a big state. We can easily fix that. Simply leave your festival and event information in the comments below so I can add it to the calendar. Or, you may email me by heading to the “Contact Me” tab above. I will then add your festival in to the giant calendar so everyone may benefit from it. See how easy that is?

Indiana Festivals & Events

Look for the Paragon Homecoming Festival, now in its 91st year, in Paragon, Indiana over the whole of Labor Day weekend.

Brownsburg is busy welcoming loads of travelers for the 61st Annual Chevrolet Performance US Nationals. You don’t need me to tell you that it’s a huge deal–and something that even locals look forward to!

The largest 4-day festival in the Midwest, the Blueberry Festival in Plymouth, also begins this weekend! It is incredible. While I was formulating the plan for this website, I was also very pregnant with our second son. I used that sprawling festival to try to “walk him out.” It didn’t work. But I did buy super cute dish towels and a small guitar that we told our son was a present from his baby brother. I also ate lots of blueberry ice cream. You probably knew that already, though.

It’s steam-powered mania at the 59th Annual Hesston Steam & Power Show! Train lovers, this LaPorte festival is for you. There are three steam train rides,  steam-powered saw mill, and even a steam crane. But wait–there’s more! Go check it out and let the rest of us know all about it.

If you have yet to visit North Salem, Indiana, what about this weekend during Old Fashion Days? It is the 40th anniversary for this small town event.

For those in need of rest and relaxation, both Quibble Hill Winery in DePauw, and Chateau Thomas Winery in Nashville, are hosting live music events. You can find out everything you need to know about that by hitting up the calendar of course.

But That’s Not All

Since Labor Day is so packed with festivals, do yourself a favor, and take a look at the calendar above. There’s just so much to see and do! It is really hard to pick. If you go off and have an adventure of your own, do come back, and let us know in the comments below what you picked.
