Arts & Entertainment

It’s not all sand-fringed lakes and epic sunsets. Here, you’ll find a vibrant arts scene stoked by a strong sense of community. Snag tickets to a sold-out local production with international acclaim. Escape to a 69-acre farm turned artists’ residence. Soak up the old-school charm of a historic opera house. Or park yourself at a vintage drive-in. When it comes to the Indiana Dunes, you’ll find our arts and entertainment scene is just as wild, unassuming, and unique as the landscape itself.
