The 65th annual Indiana Masonic Home Festival will be on September 9th, 2012.
Since 1947, the Indiana Masonic Home has held an annual Festival inviting and encouraging members of the Masonic and Eastern Star Family and their families to visit the Indiana Masonic Home Campus and the residents. The event is held in the late summer currently in September.
Early on, the Indiana Masonic Home Festival was known as the Indiana Masonic Home Pilgrimage. It was a ‘Homecoming’ of sorts. In recent years, the name was changed to the Indiana Masonic Home Festival. The event, in additional to wonderful festival activities, food, games, and parades, serves as an ‘open house’ to see the campus and tour the IMH buildings, cottages, duplexes and apartments. There are Craft Booths, Fraternal displays, a Food Court and Musical Entertainment. The day caps-off with the annual parade around the circle. Local units and many Shrine Units are in the parade.
During the Festival Weekend, on Saturday, the Indiana Masonic Home Open Golf Outing is held at a local golf course. This event is a fundraiser for the Masonic Home to benefit the Transportation Department and other programs for our Residents. Both events are open to the public and the community.
