About the District

The Tippecanoe Arts and Cultural District encompasses the downtown districts of Lafayette-West Lafayette—the heart of the Tippecanoe region. This area, comprised of three distinct areas (Chauncey Village, Wabash Riverfront and Arts and Market) centered around the storied Wabash River, is also home to an abundance of art and cultural attractions and venues such as the Art Museum of Greater Lafayette, Long Center for the Performing Arts, Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette, Morton Community Center and the Tippecanoe Arts Federation. Art galleries, traditional and non-traditional performance spaces, theaters, specialty retail and casual and fine dining restaurants representing the ethnic diversity of the area dot the District which help to define the Greater Lafayette Culture. The community also celebrates its heritage, holidays and culture through unique public art and dozens of festivals, events and community gatherings throughout the downtown and district that attracts both local citizens and visitors far and wide.
