BATTLE GROUND, Ind. (WLFI) — This year’s Indiana Fiddlers’ Gathering will have a different feel to it.

The festival, which is in its 42nd year, will be more open than in the past. The event will have less fencing, and the stage and booths will be rearranged to highlight the Tippecanoe Battlefield.

Organizers said as many as 18,000 people are expected to attend this year’s festival. Program director Scott Freeman said with an event so large, it’s time to take it to the next level.

“This is a world-class event, people expect that,” Freeman said. “There’s a level of expectation that people have when they come to events like this. It has to be done, and done well.”

The Indiana Fiddlers’ Gathering will kick off Friday, June 27 and will run until Sunday, June 29. The festival takes place at the Tippecanoe Battlefield, 200 Battleground Ave., in Battle Ground, Ind.

Concerts will start at 8 p.m. Friday and will continue through the weekend. For more information about the event, visit the Indiana Fiddlers Gathering website.
