The Elwood Glass Festival is located in Elwood Indiana and is the pride of the community and one of the leading festivals in central Indiana. The glass festival has been Elwood’s largest annual event for over 39 years and is put together by The Elwood Chamber of Commerce, sponsorships from local businesses, and other volunteers from the community.
The annual Glass Festival is held the third weekend of August and lasts three days, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The festival is a tribute to Elwood’s unique beautifully crafted, hand-blown art-glass produced in the community’s two art-glass factories, House of Glass and Prestige Crystal.
The glass festival includes a Scholarship Pageant and a parade. Other attractions include carnival rides, the Vintage Rollers Car Show which bring more than 300 classic and antique cars each year, arts and crafts, collectibles, food, bus tours, quilt show, demonstrations, fun contests, live bands and other entertainment at the Jim Knoop Amphitheater at Callaway Park.
Free Bus tours are available daily during the festival which include: both glass factories, Spencer’s Lapidary, Venus Chocolate Shop, New Day Meadery, and The Historic Elwood Opera House.
