Southeast Indiana’s first festival of the season will kick off tonight with a variety of food, music, and fun for the whole family, including a popular frog-jumping contest you have to see to believe! Scheduled to run through Saturday night, the Dillsboro Homecoming Festival will take place on the streets of downtown Dillsboro, a small town located approximately 30 miles outside of Cincinnati.
Organized by the Dillsboro Civic Club, the festival has been named a “Grand Champion Event” four times by the Indiana Association of County and District Fairs.
In addition to a carnival-like atmosphere with rides, games and concessions, the festival will feature live entertainment, music, children’s activities and more. The popular annual street fair also offers a wide variety of unusual contests and events, including traditional Dillsboro Festival favorites like apple peeling, Twinkie-eating, corn shelling and a Skyline coney dog eating competition, all scheduled for Wednesday night. A baby contest will be held on Thursday evening, while the 38th-annual frog jumping and “best dressed” frog competitions will take place Friday night.
Runners can participate in a 5K Walk & Run on Saturday morning before the parade, while car enthusiasts will enjoy the classic car show planned for Saturday at noon. And families of all ages will want to stick around for entertainment in the evenings, including performances by Bruce Murray’s “Murricane” on Wednesday night, The Killer Bs on Thursday night, The Rigbys on Friday night and Jessie Strassel and The Belairs Show Band (formerly Hot Wax) on Saturday night.
Festival hours are Wednesday-Friday, 6pm-11pm, and Saturday, 8am-11pm, with the parade beginning at 11am.
