Summertime in Amish Country is always one of the best times to visit. If you can catch one of these 5 must-see summer events, even more of a bonus.
For the first time ever the Shipshewana Flea Market is hosting two weekend markets! Bring your four-legged friend to “Dog Days” for treats, a photo booth, and even a puppy parade. Visit in August for “Mother/Daughter Days” to shop ’til you drop while taking part in special activities and drawings.
Going into its 11th year, you don’t have to be a quilter to appreciate the craftsmanship at the Shipshewana Quilt Festival. The Michiana Event Center will be full of quilts from all over the world. In addition to the Quilt & Vendor Show, there are tons of lectures and workshops to learn the newest techniques and trends.
There’s nothing better than a summer barbecue and Rogers Rib Fest is no exception. On Saturday, June 29, purchase some $1 tickets and make your way around the vendors to try the brisket, pulled pork, chicken, ribs, and delicious sides. Once you’ve got a full plate, sit and enjoy the live music while you figure out your favorites.
Get ready for 90 minutes of action-packed western entertainment at Shipshewana’s Majestic Frontier. Watch cowboys and cowgirls riding, roping, and so much more all while keeping you on the edge of your seat. With a month long of showings, finding a time to go won’t be a problem.
You’ll find more than antiques and collectibles at the Shipshewana Antique Festival. Vendors are set up all day on Saturday, August 3, but also check out old fashioned farming demonstrations, a steam & tractor show, antique telephone show, live music, food vendors, and more. Arrive the night before for even more activities and a steam engine spark show.
Packed with stories, travel ideas and deals, you'll get the very best of Shipshewana & LaGrange County delivered right to your inbox.
