July means summer has officially arrived. These are some of the things that should be on your to-do list this month.

Concours d'Elegance at Copshaholm 

Car lovers and history buffs don't want to miss one of our marquee summer events. Classic automobiles from around the country will assemble on the grounds of the Oliver Mansion for the Concours d'Elegance at Copshaholm. It's a great opportunity to explore the museum campus. 

St. Joseph County 4H Fair 

It wouldn't be summer in The Bend without a visit to the St. Joseph County 4H Fair, which runs through July 8. Animals, fair food, games and rides on the midway await those looking for some family friendly fun.

Raft the East Race Waterway 

There are few thrills like splashing down the whitewater rapids right in the heart of downtown South Bend. Open from early June through Labor Day, the East Race Waterway is a one-of-a-kind experience. Make sure to book your tickets in advance and get the scoop on everything you need to know before you go. 


International Jugglers' Association Festival

Yep, that's right. The International Jugglers' Association annual festival is July 17-23 in downtown South Bend. Main events will take place at Century Center and the Morris Performing Arts Center with others being held at venues across the city.

Plant Pride

Hosted by The Botany Shop in South Bend's Near Northwest Neighborhood, Plant Pride is an annual event that celebrates our community. It's part block party, part maker market and a great day to connect with the neighborhood and plant lovers.

Watch South Bend Cubs Baseball

Baseball season is in full swing at one of the country's best Minor League stadiums. The Cubs play at Four Winds Field from July 4-9 and July 18-23. You can expect fun for the whole family, delicious food and great promotions like Thirsty Thursday and Fantastic Friday Fireworks.
