Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Legacy Projects > Fremont Musicfest Fremont Musicfest


The entire town of Fremont participates in Musicfest, now in its 22nd year. Several streets are closed off and everyone enjoys the small-town atmosphere while listening to a variety of musical performances from old time rock and roll to county. The performers appeal to a wide range of musical tastes. In addition to the musical performances, there is a parade that takes place where the whole community gets involved. The theme for the parade this year is “Indiana Celebration 200.” The large fireworks show at the end of the festival rivals any show in northeast Indiana and is the largest in Steuben County. Fremont Musicfest is a time for the town to draw together and celebrate!
