The annual Ferdinand Heimatfest will be bringing the community together with the best food, drinks, activities, and entertainment on June 21-22, 2024

The Ferdinand Heimatfest's Mission is to enable Ferdinand, Indiana to prosper by helping Dubois County grow. Each year we take the money raised through Heimatfest and donate that money to the Ferdinand Community Endowment and the Dubois County Community Foundation.


We are so thankful to have a supportive community ready and willing to step up and volunteer time and donate resources to make the Ferdinand Heimatfest possible each year!
