The White River Festival, September 1-14, celebrates the White River and its tributaries, beautiful and important natural resources that run through 16 counties in central Indiana.
More than 30 festival events occur over two weeks with activities for the entire family. This year's festival highlights the recreational opportunities in and around the river: walks, fishing, a bird hike, free boat rides on the downtown canal and more. Community Fun Day on September 6 at White River State Park includes the second annual White River Festival Walk and Fun Run. Dogs are welcome too!
The White River is one of Indy's most precious natural resources - a recreational treasure, a habitat for wildlife, and a major supplier of water for drinking and industry. The Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust is proud to support the Festival and the White River Alliance and encourages you to be a friend of the river.
