The 100 blocks of East and West Third Street in downtown Rushville will feature plenty for visitors to see and do.

Volunteer Joyce Miller is in charge of activities planned for the 100 block of West Third Street. The local Farmers’ & Artisans’ Market will move to this area for one day. J & J Winery will be on hand offering a wine tasting for the over 21 crowd. There will be a tractor push pedal for kids, farm equipment, live music, and the Rush County Ag Round table is working with Miller on a project.

The Rushville Public Library will be open and having a scavenger hunt as well.

Carole Yeend will be handing activities and attractions in the 100 block of East Third Street.

This will feature a kid’s area. Visitors will have up close access to a fire truck. The Rushville Fire Department’s Smoke House will be operational onsite. There will be rock painting, a clown making various creations out of balloons, a bounce house, a giant slide, Zumba demonstrations and more.


Rushville’s primary north/south corridor will feature assorted vendors on both sides of the street throughout the downtown area, from Second Street to the old Princess Theatre at Fourth Street.

Local DJ Kevin Green will be providing music from the gazebo in Willkie Park in the 200 block of N. Main Street.

If you or anyone you know would like to set up a booth or table the cost is $10. Contact the Rush County Chamber of Commerce at 765-932-2880 to reserve a space or with any questions you may have.
