About Ossian Days
Each year, Ossian Days, Inc. puts on an annual street festival known as Ossian Days. Given the current health crises and uncertainty of what September may look like, we have made the difficult decision to not hold Ossian Days 2020. Ossian Days Inc. takes the health and safety of our community as a priority, and plans are already underway for the 2021 festival.
Please Note: No pets are allowed on the Midway. Only service animals are allowed.
Helpful Tip: Bring cash when you attend Ossian Days.
Many of our vendors are cash-only and do not take credit or debit cards.
You can find an ATM at Ossian State Bank, conveniently located just off the Ossian Days Midway.
