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.
