Spend the weekend outdoors at the Indiana Dunes Outdoor Adventure Festival, which takes place Friday-Sunday, September 10-12, 2021. Packed with a multitude of outdoor adventures, the festival brings together over 50 events in one weekend. With financial support from Friends of Indiana Dunes and generous help from more than a dozen partners, the Indiana Dunes National Park will host the three-day festival.

Centered at the Indiana Dunes Visitor Center in Porter, Indiana, the festival showcases the region’s outdoor activities such as hiking, paddling, biking, geo-caching, photography, birding, and so many others. The festival has events for everyone including families, beginners, experts, and those with limited mobility.

Highlights of the weekend include paddling trips on the Little Calumet River, dozens of hikes across the region led by experts, and access to natural areas not normally open to the public.

No registration is required and the festival is free. For more information, please visit the website:
