2018 Indiana Festival Guides Available
2018 marks 46 years of Electric Co-op support for Indiana Festivals
Central and southern Indiana’s electric cooperatives are marking the 46th year of support for Indiana tourism with the publication of the 2018 Indiana Festival Guide. Copies of this popular and comprehensive tourism publication are now available from SCI REMC and other Hoosier Energy power network cooperatives.
In 1972, the REMC power supplier Hoosier Energy published the first Southern Indiana Calendar of Events, which listed 41 festivals. In the decades that followed, Hoosier Energy and its member cooperatives teamed up with the Indiana Department of Tourism to sponsor the more comprehensive annual Indiana Festival Guide, now published by the Indiana State Festivals Association.
Whether you’re looking for a winter weekend getaway for two or a Fourth of July celebration fit for the whole family, the one place you can find them both – and everything in between – is in the 2018 Indiana Festival Guide.
The 104-page guide features a full-color cover and chronologically lists nearly 700 festivals, craft fairs, holiday shows, historical re-enactments and community celebrations held throughout the year in Indiana.
Tourism is an important industry comprised of many small businesses that provide positive and significant contributions to Indiana’s economy. Annual spending from more than 62 million visitors exceeds $10 billion in Indiana. The industry generates more than $1 billion in local and state tax collections from visitor expenditures. It also creates one in 10 jobs and employs approximately 260,000 Hoosiers.
As a member of the Hoosier Energy power network, SCI REMC is pleased to help highlight the best and most exciting events Indiana has to offer. Indiana’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives are committed to the communities they serve.
Copies of the 2018 Indiana Festival Guide are available free of charge at the SCI REMC office, 300 Morton Ave., in Martinsville. More information on the Festival Guide and other Indiana travel brochures is available at www.VisitIndiana.com.
