FestivalsFairsMuseumsWineriesOrchardsFun

From the Strand Theatre to the Grover Museum, to Indiana Grand Casino there’s always something interesting, inspiring and invigorating going on in Shelby County. Springtime beckons thoroughbred racing at Indiana Downs, the downtown Farmer’s Market to the Saint Joseph Spring Fair. Summertime is ushered in by the Fairland Festival and Fish Fry to the Historic Shelby County Fair, Antique Tractor Show, Coca-Cola Car Show, unique Morristown Derby Days and the Bears of Blue River Festival. Fall brings Anderson Orchard to the forefront - with over 36 varieties of apples ready to pick, cider ready to drink and pumpkins ready to snatch up! Shelby County Arts Fest is a great time for picking up some great artisan pieces. And let’s not forget the Holiday Parade and Holiday Home Tour in the Winter! Intertwined throughout the year are award winning theatrical productions by the Shelby County Players - and drive-in movies at the historic Skyline Theater. We have fun going on all year round!
