The early autumn breezes along Big Raccoon Creek set the stage for this annual event full of family fun. Bring the whole family out to skip a stone over the creek, stroll the bridge or browse through the treasures at in Mansfield Village.
The Mansfield Village celebration of the Covered Bridge Festival is unlike nowhere else in the county. As hundreds of thousands of visitors gather in October every year in
Parke County, Indiana, the Mansfield Covered Bridge stands out as one of the most visited. Built in 1867, this bridge is 247 feet long and was built by J. J. Daniels to cross Big Raccoon Creek. It is an icon that continues to remind us of a simpler time.
There's fun for everyone in the family at the Mansfield Village Annual Mushroom Festival the weekend of April 29th 2017!
Come early and register for organized mushroom hunts and buy or sell mushrooms at the auction. Win a cash prize for the largest mushroom each day, regardless of where it was found. Visitors who join in the mushroom hunt can take home, not only a delicious meal, but also a hand carved mushroom walking stick for those who find the largest and most mushrooms.
