Annual Events keep you coming back!

Some of the best times to visit our communities is during one of our amazing festivals and special events. Whether you are planning your trip specifically to attend one of our events or are checking to see what's going on while you're here, you'll LOVE celebrating with us in Huntington County!

Eagle Watch at Salamonie Lake (DNR) is something to see each February! During Jan/Feb of each year, eagles migrate to open water as a food source. The Upper Wabash Interpretive Services take you on a caravan to the best places for scouting eagles. Multi-day event and registration required.

Huntington Heritage Days is held in mid-June of every year and celebrates the history and culture of the City of Huntington. Enjoy the carnival, car shows, hot air balloon events and plenty of community events and fun.

JeFFFest is always held the last day of Huntington Heritage Days and the three F's stand for "FUN FOOD, FINE ART, and FAB MUSIC!" Enjoy live entertainment while bidding on artwork created by locals of all ages and skill. Purchase tickets to sample food from area businesses and organizations.

Salamonie Summer Festival in Warren has been amping up the Fourth of July Weekend for over 50 years and we gotta tell you, this "Small Town with a Big Heart" knows how to party! Parades, concerts, antique tractor/engine show, food, games, water ball, flea market, tractor pull, bingo and some of the best fireworks around.

Our kids work hard to prepare every year for the Huntington County 4-H Fair. Held in August, the fair is a must-do. Come out to see the livestock, projects and don't leave without sampling some of that delicious fair food (tip: try the milkshakes)!

Car lovers flock to Rolling into Roanoke, a one day car show held in late July each year. Classic and collector cars line the streets and the park of this small town with a featured car selected each year. Live music, vendors, shopping, food and plenty of activities make this car show a sell-out and an area favorite.

Splash on the Wabash is held in Huntington each year at the Forks of the Wabash Historic Park. Hundreds of participants take a 90 minute lazy river inner tube ride down the scenic Wabash River. Great fun for anyone aged 8+.

Fall can't come soon enough each year as we wait for the annual Roanoke Fall Festival. This multi-day festival is Huntington County's oldest running event, nearly 70 years! Parades, fair food, rides, games, activities, live music, demolition derby and tractor pull make this an action-packed weekend each September.

The Forks of the Wabash Pioneer Festival, held the third weekend each September, allows attendees to travel back in time with re-enactments, encampments, vendors, hand-crafted items, foods, entertainment, antique engines, antiques and more! Did we mention the food?

A Renaissance in Roanoke Juried Show and Handcraft Marketplace is a one-day event every October with a juried art show, the Plein Air Paint Out competition, a juried Handcrafted Marketplace, children’s Plein Air competition, Fall Farmers’ Market and live entertainment. It's all held downtown where you can enjoy Roanoke's many charming shops, galleries and restaurants!
