The Blue Gate is best place for evening entertainment in Shipshewana and is fast becoming a household name in the Midwest featuring world-class musicals with national talent, outstanding production and poignant story-telling. This year will feature multiple Grammy Winners two musicals based on New York Times Bestselling books, the biggest names in Southern Gospel and Christian Entertainment and much more.
The musical “The Confession” is based on the New York Times Bestselling books by Beverly Lewis. It’s a brilliant love story and a keep-you-at-the-edge-of-your-seat mystery all wrapped into one. There is a lot of humor, outstanding music and the twists and turns will keep you guessing. Our new musical "Half-Stitched" is a musical comedy that will keep you in stitches as an Amish widow teaches some "English" folks about quilting and about themselves.
When the Blue Gate opened in 1986 it had only 50 seats, but after 15 years the little restaurant has expanded and become a cornerstone of Shipshewana. It resembles a rambling white farmhouse and presently seats 750.
For the best value — and a great night out — evening shows come coupled with a family-style meal.
