Why Meet in Our County?

It’s close to everything yet far away from it all

A gathering in LaGrange County

Shipshewana/LaGrange County is conveniently close while feeling worlds away. We’re less than 200 miles from Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis and Toledo and within minutes of the South Bend and Fort Wayne International Airports. Once you’ve arrived, however, you notice the difference immediately. People are friendly here and we treat everyone like a neighbor. When you listen, you can hear the birds singing and you can see the stars scattered across the night sky. You can’t help but to relax and enjoy life simplified.

Whether you’re meeting to strategize or regroup, to celebrate or reconnect with family, our Amish Backroads welcome you as if you’ve been away too long. Your group will instantly feel at home. Our Meeting & Event Facilities are able to accommodate groups from 10 to 1000 with state-of-the-art features and down-home charm. Activities are easy to plan—simply choose from four seasons of outdoor recreation, unique shopping excursions and original Amish-culture experiences. As for feeding large groups, you could say that’s our specialty. We look forward to welcoming you to Family-Style meals that fill the table to splitting with home-cooked dishes. Just don’t forget to leave room for the pie.
