What to expect
THE BEST SHIPSHEWANA HAS TO OFFER
Quilters, carvers, painters, blacksmiths, musicians and crafters of all types will flood the town and its many quaint stores, providing demonstrations and entertainment Friday and Saturday.
There will be events for all ages and tastes. Little ones will enjoy a whole tent just for them filled with fun hands-on activities as well as free rides on a kiddie train. Parents will have plenty to see and do as well, from hand-painted and personalized decor, to leather workers, and musicians that will play as you enjoy the food available in town.
NO RAINING ON OUR PARADE
“The Shipshewana Fall Crafters Fair is a long standing event with a proven record of bringing in some of the most unique and interesting crafts, performers and food around. We are extremely excited to continue that tradition as this event moves to the Michiana Event Center starting in 2019.” - Jeff Fought, Marketing and Event Director at the MEC.
