About Kunstfest

This celebration of German heritage and art is one of the biggest of its kind in Indiana. “Kunst” means “art” in German, and you can expect to see a lot of it. Artists from across the region will sell and showcase their creations. With so many unique pieces, you’re sure to find something you’ll love! Over 250 vendors will line the streets, showcasing art, gifts, antiques, crafts, and more. All of your German favorites will be there—bratwurst, kraut balls, kuchen, apple cider, chicken and dumplings, German potato salad, brain sandwiches, fried bologna, ice cream, kettle corn and more! Events include musical performances from the Dulcimer & Polka, Blue Grass, and German Folk Music genres, Music on the Patio, Liar’s Contest at the Murphy Auditorium, children’s activities at the family stage at Maclure Square, and more! Something you can’t miss at Kunstfest is the historical craft demonstrations. Each year, children stand in awe as they watch experts demonstrate blacksmithing, rope making, pottery, weaving, spinning and more. Some of these creations will be available for sale, and demonstrators will be present to explain the art of each craft to audiences.
