Fortville Winterfest, presented by the Town of Fortville and 3Rivers Federal Credit Union, is back bigger than ever and is now hosted by the Fortville Parks Department.

A free, one-day event, Winterfest is a holiday tradition for many Indiana families. This year’s festival on Saturday, December 3, noon-7 p.m., is sure to kick start the holiday spirit for attendees.


During the festival, Main Street will be blocked and festival-goers will be able to enjoy Fortville’s charming downtown shops, eateries, live music, bonfire stations, family photo ops, vendors, and a kids’ zone. Additional activities include a festive parade at 1:30 p.m., a tree lighting at 6 p.m., visits with Santa, ice skating, a gaming truck, and a kids’ crafts station with free popcorn and hot cocoa. Additionally, the popular snowflake princess and Jack Frost contest are back again this year.

The kids’ zone and all festival vendors and businesses open at noon. Many of the local Fortville eateries will stay open well past the end of the festival as well. Additionally, businesses along Main Street with visible storefront
windows will be participating in a window decorating contest in celebration of Winterfest.

Fortville is central to several local Christmas tree farms, and it’s quaint to see the trees tied to the top of the cars as they travel through our town. It’s fun to think you could enjoy a free holiday festival, shop for
unique gifts, get lunch, visit Santa and get your tree all in one day.

This year’s partners include 3Rivers Federal Credit Union, Moon Drops Distillery, Ryan Homes, The Current, Ben Eades State Farm Agency, Greenfield Banking
Company and Fortville Action, Inc.
