TURTLE DAYSTurtle Days is the oldest continuously running festival of Indiana held annually in Churubusco (Turtletown USA) celebrating the legend of "Oscar the Turtle" the "Beast of Busco".

     2016 we celebrated the 67th Churubusco Turtle Days FestivalTM

     The festival was held the traditional third Wednesday in June 15 - 18, 2016, in honor of the hunt for "Oscar" which began in 1949. 

     The four day festival was filled with contests, vendors, concessions, music, games, rides, fireworks, and many activities for the whole family.

     Thank you, to all that helped make this festival one to remember, by getting involved, sponsoring, or participating in the celebration.



                                                                        



                                                                                     

           Thanks for another great year! We look forward to the 68th festival next year, June 14th-17th, 2017! The planning has already begun. Check back often for new updates on 2017.
