Mayberry meets Woodstock is the best way to describe the Linton Music Festival (LMF). It’s small town meets big festival as nearly 30 artists grace 2 stages over 3 days in the rural Indiana city of Linton (pop. 6,000) and home to The Goose Pond, one of the Nation’s largest wetland preservation projects.

Welcome to the City of Linton. We believe our community has much to offer, whether you are a new business looking to startup or relocate, a current business owner considering an expansion, someone looking for a good place to live, or a first-time visitor. We are committed to building a business-friendly environment so that businesses can prosper and citizens can take advantage of job opportunities in and around the community. Our City parks and multiple county, state and national recreational areas all offer a retreat from your normal day-to-day routine. We have many educational alternatives including an excellent public school system and multiple private options

Dozens of churches offer spiritual fulfillment regardless of denomination. Our community has been acknowledged for its wide variety of community service organizations that work to improve quality of life. We have state of the art health care facilities that are expanding for all your health needs. Our mission, as citizens and representatives of our community, is to encourage the vision, the leadership and guidance needed to improve the growth and quality of love for residents and their families as they live, work and prosper in Linton.
