Ferdinand (NNDC) –

The Annual Ferdinand Heimatfest sponsored by MasterBrand Cabinets is underway at 18th street park.

The annual Ferdinand Heimatfest will be bringing the community together with the best food, drinks, activities, and Live entertainment Friday and Saturday.

The Ferdinand Heimatfest’s Mission is to enable Ferdinand, Indiana to prosper by helping Dubois County grow. Each year we take the money raised through Heimatfest and donate that money to the Ferdinand Community Endowment and the Dubois County Community Foundation.

Get it while it last! 


Music, Music, the Heimatfest offers a ton of great music including Jason Lee McKinney a two time nationally signed recording artist, powerhouse vocalist, and songwriter. McKinney blends a snarling musical underbelly full of equal parts trained prowess and an almost out of control piss and vinegar attitude; soaring sing-along hook melodies, with lyrics that are raw and raucous, reflective and radiant; simultaneously weaving a narrative that is both uniquely his and everyman’s story.  Performing Friday on the main stage 9-11pm.

Corey Cox on the main stage Saturday 9pm.

While on the road and splitting time between his home state of Indiana and Nashville, TN the past 10 years, Corey has performed more than 1,000 shows and shared the stage with Dierks Bentley, Darius Rucker, Willie Nelson, Love and Theft, and Chris Young at prestigious music venues, tours, rodeos, fairs and festivals across the country.

Come join the fun, food, and music this weekend in Ferdinand at the Heimatfest!
