TURTLE DAYS
     Turtle 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".

     2017 we will celebrate the 68th Churubusco Turtle Days FestivalTM

     The festival will again break from the traditional third week and be held the second Wednesday in June 14 - 17, 2017, in honor of the hunt for "Oscar" which began in 1949. 

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

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