Exciting May Events Upcoming In Shipshewana Indiana

The coming of spring heralds in an exciting time for bargain hunters eagerly awaiting the opening of the iconic Shipshewana Flea Market and Auction. I’m happy to report that the market will open this year on Tuesday and Wednesday May 4-5 – which just happens to be next week.

So, if you were looking for an excuse to climb into the car and drive out to relaxing Amish Country, then mark your calenders for next Tuesday and Wednesday for the opening of the flea market and auction. I know we can’t wait to find some great bargains!

Also of note – on May 8th is the special Garden, Art & Antique show. If you can’t make it during the week to the Shipshewana Flea Market opening – then check it out Memorial Day weekend when the market will have a special opening for 3 days starting Memorial Day itself.

If you’re in town and looking for somewhere to eat – you can’t go wrong with our favorite Amish themed haunt – the Blue Gate Restaurant.
