How Connected Are You To Your Place?
A sneak peek at our Festival's Opening Night event
Friday, November 7


We are so excited about our 2014 Festival on JOURNEY that we wanted to give you a sneak peek of what we have been planning for November. Our Opening Night event, partnering with Indiana Humanities, will be an evening full of interactive fun featuring their soon-to-be-released new program ALL-IN. This collection of interactive challenges encourage Hoosiers to think, discuss, read, explore, and collaborate; allowing us to grow both individually and as a community.


The Opening Night will allow you to complete a handful of challenges which include transporting your taste buds around the world and sharing your hometown pride. Join us for a journey you won't soon forget.
