Downtown Greenfield 

If it’s live music you are looking for, downtown Greenfield has you covered this fall. With an entertainment and rock tent, there will be something for everyone at the Riley Festival. The Riley Festival also serves as one of the largest craft festivals in Indiana, so make sure to check out the incredible artwork on display from across the state.

New Palestine 

New Palestine, Indiana is another arts hotspot to check out as they usher out the last rays of summer sun and welcome the cool autumn breeze.
