Event Venue & Lodging Information

The Midwest’s Biggest “All-El Camino Show”:

ELCOFEST ’24 will return to “The Barns at Nappanee” in historic Nappanee, Indiana.

The venue features a steakhouse restaurant, craft shoppes, theatre, ice cream shoppe & soda fountain, and historical Amish-lifestyle farm experience tour in which one can “Embrace the Pace” of our local Amish heritage community.

“The Barns at Nappanee, Home of Amish Acres, looks forward to continuing the legacy of Amish Acres and adding new and exciting events and ideas to the farm.”

(So we’re bringing out the  El Camino’s…LOTS of El Camino’s!)

Food & Dining Options

The Barns Steakhouse Restaurant will be open for in-house Menu and Buffet dining as well as Take-Out options off of the Menu. Order and they’ll bring it out!

They will also be planning on grilling Burgers and Hot Dogs, as well as Chicken and Rib Tips outside near the Show Field area as well as some other menu options for our convenience.

“Escape to The Barns at Nappanee in Nappanee, Indiana and share the heritage of century old craftsmanship and agriculture. Time stopped over a century ago and is preserved, in the Amish, a way of life adhering to nearly forgotten patterns of living in today’s fast paced world. The legacy of the three generations of the family who lived here is seen and felt through a nostalgic visit to the farm and homestead.”
