There are so many special events going on around Amish Country, you’ll find plenty to do anytime you choose to visit Arthur.

Spring BalloonsWe are often asked how we put together so many events. The answer is that we have a lot of involved and caring local folks who have a lot of fun doing them.

We have fairs and festivals, blue grass jams and “opry style” shows, craft shows, quilt shows, BBQ competitions, auctions and many benefit events, ball tournaments, historical reenactments, professional theater, bicycle tours, antique shows, and much, much more. Bicycle Tour

We, of course slow down a bit in January and February, when we have only 2-3 events each month… and when we can get outside, we ramp up to the summer and early fall seasons where you can choose between separate events practically every day! national cheese eating contest
