Since 1972. The festival is a tribute to Elwood’s unique, beautifully crafted, hand-blown art-glass produced in the community’s two art-glass factories–The House of Glass and Prestige Crystal. The glass festival includes a parade, carnival rides, a quilt show, arts and crafts, collectibles, food, bus tours, demonstrations, photography and other fun contests. The Vintage Rollers Car Show brings more than 300 classic and antique cars each year. Live bands and other entertainment perform at the Jim Knoop Amphitheater at Callaway Park. The free Bus tours are available daily during the festival and include The House of Glass, Prestige Crystal, Venus Chocolate Shop, Prestige Crystal Art Glass, and The Historic Elwood Opera House as their destinations. The Elwood Glass Festival is an event the whole family will enjoy. Admission is FREE!
