We can't wait to see you!
We don't know about you, but we are excited to be together again this year and try some of the amazing local wines, beers, and spirts. We are working with Parkview Field and the local health department to have a safe festival, have some fun, and to do some good! The JA Wine & Beer Festival is one of Junior Achievement's largest fundraisers and all proceeds go to support programs that inspire and educate our young people in Northern Indiana to own their future economic success and turn their dreams into reality. Details will be updated here but follow our Facebook 2021 event page for updates, information and when tickets go on sale (in April).

In 2020, it was best to not to have the nearly 1,500-person event. We appreciate everyone who supported JA and the financial literacy programs we provide to area students by taking part in our UN-Festival. Thank you to our sponsors for sticking with us and to everyone who participated in our big online auction, purchased a Pappy Van Winkel 23 Year raffle ticket, and purchased a JA Community Discount Card full of deals to local businesses. Your UN-Festival participation allowed us to provide as many children as the past year, more than 2,250, in this area with the JA lessons that give them the inspiration and tools to live their best life.
Details are still being figured out for this year, but in 2019 this festival included live music, games, raffles and so many wonderful local vendors:
