Navy Bean Fall Festival


Main & Front Streets Rising Sun, IN 47040

888.776.4786 or 812.438.2750

Set in the City’s historic downtown and along the scenic banks of the mighty Ohio River, the Navy Bean Festival is filled with great food including the signature Navy Bean Soup and homemade cornbread. For the perfect small town festival just add rides & games, live music, a parade, and even more Navy Bean Soup. (Yes…it’s THAT good!) 

Through out the years, the Navy Bean Fall Festival had national acts bringing the big time to our small town. This year the focus is on amazing local and regional talent. The venue for the performers is more intimate; the big tent will not be used due to state regulations keeping the audience too far back incase the tent fell. The bands will be entertaining us from a stage set up under our pavilion at the end of Main Street. Collectively these bands will be covering all of the hits spanning decades and bringing our past to life with their lyrics, taking us back to the good ole days.  Look for cool collectable concert tee shirts being sold on Main Street the days of the event. This will be a weekend you will want to remember and have proof you were there.
