KOSCIUSKO — The Indiana State Festival Association announced that the 2018 Indiana Festival Guide is now available at more than 900 locations in all 92 counties.
The 2018 Indiana Festival Guide features more than 660 festivals across the state celebrating everything from heritage and historic figures to locally grown persimmons and apples.
“No matter how big or small, our members’ events perfectly showcase Hoosier hospitality and generate revenue for Indiana communities,” said Indiana State Festivals Association President Larry Bemis. “We are thankful for our continued membership growth and sponsorship from partners such as the Indiana Office of Tourism Development and Hoosier Energy. Their support allows us to create the only comprehensive events publication in Indiana.”
The cover of the 2018 Indiana Festival Guide features the Kiwanis Club of South Central Indiana’s Balloon Fest. The 104-page, glovebox-sized booklet provides details on festivals every month of the year, as well as travel destination information. Hoosier Energy has sponsored the Indiana Festival Guide since 1972, making 2018 its 46th year of partnership.
Festival-goers can find pick-up locations and order a mailed copy, or view and download the 2018 Indiana Festival Guide by visiting IndianaFestivals.org.
