The annual Senior Fall Fest at Salamonie Lake will be September 9-11, with a focus this year on Miami Indian culture in Indiana.

All ages are welcome this year. There will be a program fee of $3 after the standard entrance fee of $5 per in-state vehicle or $7 per out-of-state vehicle.
Senior Fall Fest will kick off Monday at noon with the Senior Monday Luncheon at the interpretive center. Advance registration is required. Participants should bring a prepared dish to share, table service, drink and a $1 donation for the provided main dish. A presentation by the vice chief of the Miami Nation of Indiana will follow.

Senior Fall Fest will include more than a dozen programs, including presentations on Miami language and culture to hands-on craft sessions on beading, finger weaving and flint napping. Salamonie is taking registrations by phone for programs with limited seating. Some programs also will have a materials fee.
