Festival Description

Be a part of all the excitement and festivities during the Annual Old Washington Street Festival to be held on the four blocks of East Washington Street between Madison and Hackley Emily Kimbrough House Streets.

The primary focus of the Old Washington Street Festival is on the architectural, cultural, and social heritage of Muncie's Emily Kimbrough Historic District and the surrounding neighborhood from Gas Boom Era (1880 through 1910). An Historic Home tour extends the bounds of the Festival to approximately fourteen square blocks.

On Washington Street, visitors will find artist booths, crafts vendors, musical entertainment, refreshments, antiques, a hand-drawn fire pumper, and demonstrations of period crafts to take visitors back to the gas boom era. We expect the variety of attractions to draw in excess of 8,000 people.

Since 1976 the East Central Neighborhood Association in Muncie, Indiana has sponsored the Old Washington Street Festival.
