Nappanee is the "Gateway to Amish Country" in Elkhart and Kosciusko Counties in northern Indiana. As of the 2000 census, the population was 6,710. Nappanee was selected among TIME Magazine's "Best Small Towns." It has much to offer visitors. From the bustling downtown shops, great Amish restaurants and beautiful country scenery, Nappanee is where modern life meets the quiet rhythms of the Amish tradition. The town hosts the Amish Acres Arts & Crafts Festival the first weekend in August, Thursday through Sunday. It features 350 artists over $10,000 in cash prizes are awarded in twelve categories. The festival is four full days of entertainment on four stages, musical theatre, guided tours, and wagon rides. Over 70,000 visitors attend the event each year. Other attractions include Elkhart County's 90-mile Heritage Trail, which takes you on a winding loop along rural highways, down quiet country lanes and along small town main streets. The scenic route will lead you to many of the region's most popular restaurants, shops, inns and attractions. This route was selected among the "100 Places to See in Your Lifetime" by the editors of Life. The Heritage Trail Audio Driving Tour is available at several places in Nappanee, including the Elkhart County Visitor Center and the Nappanee Chamber of Commerce. Nappanee is also near Shipshewana, another popular town in the heart of Amish Country. Shipshewana is home to the very popular flea market, May through October, and the Shipshewana Quilt Festival.
