On August 8, learn about Hoosier history at the annual Hoosier Heritage Day at the Indiana State Fair, 9 a.m. - 9 p.m., on State Fair Boulevard.
Fairgoers can meet re-enactors portraying Madame C.J. Walker, President Abraham Lincoln, and Raggedy Anne. After talking with the re-enactors, attendees can play a history trivia game, try on an Indiana Supreme Court Judge’s robe, or put together a State House puzzle. Attendees can learn more about Hoosier participation in all U.S. wars by talking with historical re-enactors or by visiting with the staff at the Indiana War Memorial. Finally, take a trip on one of the architectural trolley tours and learn about the history and beauty of the buildings at the State Fair.
