The always popular community event, Canal Days, is coming to New Haven June 4th-8th

This year, the graduation ceremonies for New Haven High School have been moved to Sunday, paving the way for the return of the immensely popular Canal Days Car Show and Cruise-In on Friday night, June 7th, in the NHHS parking lot.  Following the Car Show and Cruise-In, local favorite Spike and the Bulldogs will take to the main entertainment stage to draw thousands of spectators into Schnelker Park.

Saturday June 8th at Canal Days has been coined ‘Faith and Family Day’, and is jam packed with many exciting new events like a Family Magic Show and popular annual events like the Festival Parade and Kid’s Day in the Park.

Also new for 2013 is a huge concert planned for Saturday evening on the main stage to end the Festival on a truly high note.  The City of New Haven is set to welcome from Nashville, Tennessee national Contemporary Christian recording artists Love & the Outcome and the Sidewalk Prophets, who just wrapped a tour on the #1 grossing concert in all of music for 2012 and 2013.  Local school children will be singing the National Anthem prior to the concert.  Attendance for this concert is expected to surpass well over 5,000 concertgoers from all over Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.

We are currently $8,000 short of our sponsorship goals for the week-long festival and are in significant need of the community’s generous benevolence to allow the Canal Days Festival to continue bringing both families and visitors alike to our beloved town.  Sponsorship packages for businesses and individual sponsors range in amounts from $100- $2,500 are available, with no amount being considered insignificant.

A list of all of our exciting sponsorship opportunities is available for viewing at  Please contact Mike Clendenen, Superintendent of the New Haven Parks & Recreation Department at 260-749-2212 or Jon Stauffer, President of the New Haven Canal Days Festival at 260-602-9618.
