Fill Up Your Calendar With These Spring Events

Warmer weather has arrived and there is no better place to be than Knox County. With events large and small happening nearly every week, there’s something for everyone to enjoy!

Attend a First Friday Art Walk

The first Friday of every month

Step out into this beautiful Spring weather and into downtown Vincennes & onto Vincennes University’s Campus. Celebrate art and admire art from local & visiting artists at our three downtown art galleries and the Shircliff Gallery on the Vincennes University Campus.

These family-friendly events happen on the first Friday of every month and often include live music, refreshments, and a sense of community. It’s also a great way to experience downtown Vincennes at a time when many of our shops and restaurants aren’t open.

Monday night dinner is solved! The Vincennes Food Trucks on the Wabash are back on the Riverwalk and delicious made-to-order meals, snacks, and drinks!

Their Facebook page is updated every week with the available food vendors featured for the week.
