You know what makes us smile around here? Boundless creativity and imagination that celebrates the vibrant arts scene of Elkhart County. 

From public art in downtown Goshen to a beautiful makers space in Nappanee, here are new ways the arts enrich our life: 

Goshen Art Alley 


Six artists from the Goshen area recently unveiled new murals in Art Alley off Main Street (on the north side) between Washington and Lincoln. The creations each honor the theme “Love Goshen Places” in their own inventive and colorful way. Check them out! They’ll be perfect for your Instagram story! 

Pro Tip: 


Here’s how to make a day of it. Grab a cup of Joe from the Electric Brew and enjoy the walkable downtown filled with local shops. Grab lunch at the counter at Olympia Candy Kitchen and shop some more. Still hungry? Sip some suds and grab dinner at Goshen Brewing Co.


Nappanee Arts Center 

For makers young and old, the Nappanee Arts Council recently opened the new Nappanee Arts Center. The working studio gives artists a comfortable and inviting space to hone their skills and bring beauty to life through classes and private lessons. 

The city of Nappanee is in the heart of Northern Indiana Amish Country and home to The Barns at Nappanee Home of Amish Acres. Here you can enjoy a delicious meal in the Barns Restaurant and world class entertainment in The Round Barn Theatre.
