A La Porte Tradition Right Around the Corner

(La Porte, IN) - The Sunflower Fair in downtown La Porte is gearing up for its 22nd year on Saturday, September 18th. 


The fair, celebrating community and creativity around LaPorte, will run from 8 AM to 4 PM along Michigan Avenue between Lincolnway and Noble Street. According to organizers of the event, more than 100 craft and specialty vendors will be on hand, along with a food court. There will also be live entertainment, car show, rib cookoff, art walk, and family-oriented fun. In addition, officials said that the La Porte Farmers Market would also be set up with locally sourced produce and goods. 


This year, the Sunflower Fair committee is asking the community for help keep the fair going and improve the fair. Two tiers of corporate sponsorships are available for those interested. For more details, contact Liz Kaminski at 219.363.5787 or email lskaminski@comcast.net.
