Event Description

The Riley Festival invites you to enjoy one of the largest festivals in the state of Indiana, with designated areas for food, commercial and flea market booths and much more. The event follows years of traditions in the celebration of the birth date of James Whitcomb Riley, the “Hoosier Poet.” It begins every year on the first Thursday of October. Residents of Greenfield, Hancock County and the surrounding area join talent and resources annually to honor the memory of Greenfield’s noted native son.

Over 460 exhibitors will be set up on the streets around the 100 year old courthouse. Mr. Riley’s statue was placed in front of the courthouse in 1918 and is the focal point of the Riley Festival.

Bring the whole family and enjoy this community festival with designated areas for entertainment, food, commercial and flea market booths, plus Fine Arts, Home Arts & Quilt Show, Photography, and Decorated Pumpkin shows.
