The festival offers unique hand-crafted items and incorporates all forms of art and crafts, including music and painting. The location, Saturn Street in Cumberland, Indiana, and date, third Saturday in August, as well as its long partnership with the Cumberland Farmers Market, will remain the same as in previous years.
It’s country meets city; it’s beautiful paintings with fresh produce, it’s lively entertainment while relaxing with friends; it’s a Great Summer Day, but it doesn’t stop there! It is a family friendly event, with free admission and free, convenient parking. The festival is handicapped-accessible and located on Saturn Street, next to Cumberland Town Hall. It’s an easy walk to shop at booths and enjoy the festivities!
