For over a half century the Amish Acres Arts & Crafts Festival has grown into one of the nation's premier festivals. For an unprecedented eighth time the American Bus Association has named the event one of North American's TOP 100 Events. Its success is rooted in the family business that has produced the festival for four generations. The annual event has now drawn nearly two million visitors and artists have sold an estimated $35 million and received over a quarter of a million dollars in prize money.  


The readers of Sunshine Artist magazine have ranked the festival as high as the 3rd best Classic and Contemporary Craft Show in the country. Travel Trade Magazine's Focus 500 lists Amish Acres first among its top ten attractions for group travel in Indiana. Senior Group Traveler chose the festival as its only Indiana selection included in their Editor's Choice List of Outstanding Festivals and Major Events: one of only seventy nationwide. This national recognition has been earned by the exhibitors and the festival's staff.


The show is promoted with extensive local, regional and national print, billboard, television, radio, Internet, email, social media, and direct mail advertising with online retail opportunities to attract buyers specifically interested in unique hand crafted products. The festival's target audience encircles Nappanee from Chicago to Indianapolis to Toledo and Detroit.


Calling all Artists! Calling all Artists!  

Over five decades the festival has earned the respect of talented artisans from across the country because of its sales history, commitment to quality, juried products and family friendly but business-oriented approach to show management. The show is limited to approximately 300 booth spaces, with nearly 250 cities in over 30 states represented by exhibitors. Applications are now being accepted online or contact or (574) 773-4188 extension 213 for further application information.
