Once a year the city of Cannelton celebrates its rich history by hosting the Cannelton Heritage Festival on the second Saturday of October. The festival is set on Washington (Main) Street in the heart of Cannelton’s Historic District.

The main focus of the festival is its arts and crafts vendors.  Artisans and craftsmen from all over display, demonstrate and sell their hand-crafted items.  Again this year, several regional blacksmiths will be forging metal artwork demonstrating their craftsmenship and talents throughout the day.

In addition to the arts and crafts, there is music throughout the day and a variety of food vendors providing good food.

Other activities include: Horse Rescue South will have a petting zoo, the Southern Indiana Mule and Draft Horse Association will provide free wagon rides, Agape Church will have a pedal tractor pull and Renew Cannelton, Inc. will sponsor a kids’ carnival and pumpkin painting.

Come join us for a day of family fun.

The Cannelton Heritage Festival is on Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. (Central) on Washington Street.  The festival is just off Highway 66, part of the Ohio River Scenic Byway.
