Throughout the year, the City of Delphi hosts a variety of festivals and events for your family’s enjoyment. 

The Canal Days festival is held every 4th of July weekend at Canal Park in Delphi with narrated trail walks, activities for children, and plenty of food.  Canal transportation is celebrated at the Wabash & Erie Canal Park and Interpretive Center.  In 2009, the new replica canal boat, The Delphi, was introduced.  Rides are available each weekend.

The most historically significant county festival is Old Settlers which has taken place each August since 1855! Its roots trace back to an annual meeting of the original settlers of the county.  It is held Wednesday through the second Saturday each August.


Historic programs, special dinners, historic crafters, a carnival, and other activities are featured on the courthouse square and other venues throughout Delphi.  Also downtown, the Opera House and the Opera House Gallery of Contemporary Art feature tours of the facility and an exhibition of local artists.  .

To round out the year, you can celebrate an Old-Fashioned Christmas at Canal Park and enjoy music, walking trails, and homemade apple dumplings!
