The New Harmony Business Associates Education and Activities Fund has announced its slate of Festivals for 2021.  We are so thrilled to be able to resume our wonderful festivals in New Harmony that so many missed last year,” said Jane Griffiths, the association president in 2021.  “We are known throughout the Tri-State area as the home to great festivals and fun and this year’s events will be some of the most exciting, we have held!  We can’t wait to get started!”  Festival events are dependent on Health Department approval at the time of the events.

New Harmony’s Festival Season kicks off with the19th annual Golden Raintree Antiques Festival June 12-13.  The Golden Raintree is a New Harmony tradition!  Antique vendors and craft artisans will feature their wares inside and out!  Saturday hours 9-5 and Sunday 9-4.

Kunstfest is the Tri-States’ biggest festival and celebrates New Harmony’s deep German heritage!  This year’s festival on September 18 & 19 will feature a German Bier Garten, great German food and music, as well as over 200 vendors!  It is a sight to behold and tons of fun for Germans (or just those who want to be at Kunstfest) of all ages.  Children events and heritage artisans will demonstrate their crafts. 

New Harmony has been an artistic cultural center for many years.  Arts in Harmony is a festival dedicated to celebrating and featuring art of many forms.  Vendors will line the streets showcasing their art (and selling it to!), workshops and demonstrations will be conducted both days, and special emphasis will feature artists of various cultural backgrounds.  Don’t miss both days October 16 and 17th.

If a small town Christmas right out of a Hallmark Movie is your style, do not miss Christmas in New Harmony December 4 & 5th.  A Christmas parade Saturday morning kicks off a host of events including a tour of some of New Harmony’s beautiful homes decorated for Christmas, a host of top flight vendors featuring Christmas items, and of course – lots of food and shopping at New Harmony’s charming shops and eateries.  Candyland with Santa  Christmas tree lighting Friday night at Red G.

“We hope folks will come and enjoy the weekend in one of America’s Dozen Distinctive Destinations (America’s Trust for Historic Preservation”) during any or all of our festivals!” Kent Schuttee, President of the Business Associates added.  Take a historic tour, enjoy the festivals, and the charm of New Harmony this year.
