About Rockville - Parke County Covered Bridge Festival

The Parke County Covered Bridge Festival has been taking place since 1957. Vendors with homemade/handmade items, primitives, and antiques gather on the courthouse lawn, and local non-profits serve a variety of foods each day. Free covered bridge maps are available at the two information booths, along with tickets for the guided bus tours of covered bridges. Additional shopping opportunities are available at numerous businesses around the courthouse square, along with eight other locations. The art gallery, museum, and 1883 train depot will all be open for a unique cultural experience. The historic Ritz Theater offers several theatrical presentations to enjoy too.
