As we enter the fall season and summer festivals wind down, there’s still time to enjoy one more German heritage festival. New Harmony’s Kunstfest features artists from across the Tri-State region that will sell and showcase their creations. There will also be opportunities to have fun with entertainment, festival food, and New Harmony history. Check out more about Kunstfest and other local events this weekend with our Staff Pick Events.
