Our Festivals


Old Washington's two longest running festivals are the Simon Kenton Festival during the 3rd weekend in September and the Frontier Christmas Festival during the first weekend in December.   Both events have special music, museums are open for free, vendors selling a variety of crafts, food, gifts, and more are present.   The Art & Chocolate Festival is a spring event to celebrate our local artists and all things chocolate! 


Simon Kenton Festival is held annually on the 3rd weekend in September.   For 2019, it will be held Sept. 21-22.
