Shipshewana Fall Crafters Fair

455 East Farver
Shipshewana, IN 46565

The festival will be a tribute to the crafting and old-fashioned culture in the surrounding Shipshewana countryside. 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. “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.  It is an event that has become an annual pilgrimage for people all around, as they experience the lovely little town of Shipshewana and all the area has to offer.  We are extremely excited to continue that tradition as this event moved to the Michiana Event Center in 2019.” says Jeff Fought, of the MEC.

The focus on making this festival a time for families comes from Shipshewana’s - as well as the surrounding communities’ - focus on these values. 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.
