Summer Events

We recommend checking ahead to confirm the status and hours of each event. 

The South Shore offers an abundance of lively and entertaining events and festivals to make summertime special! Enjoy music and food at fabulous local festivals such as Whiting's world-famous Pierogi Fest®, DeMotte's Touch of Music, Hammond's Festival of the Lakes or Hobart's Lakefront Festival. Visit the Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Jasper and Newton county fairs for events, rides, food and exhibits that the whole family will enjoy.

Check out the classic cars at Crown Point's weekly cruise night, experience yoga at Friendship Gardens, hike with a ranger at the Indiana Dunes plus so much more!

You'll never run out of family-friendly events and delightful festivals along the South Shore.
