Our mission:

The Yellow River Festival is a celebration

of the historical and ecological

significance of the Yellow River, and it's

relationship to Marshall County

along with the larger geographic region. 

Our goal is to present to the public, the history, 

and the development of The City of Plymouth,

Marshall County, Indiana, and America, all the way

from the earliest explorers to our present-day experience. 

From our forefathers farming the land to the development of industry, our goal is to accurately portray the growth into a city, county, and statehood with no revisionist history, just the truth, be it good times or bad. 


A major part of the Festival is a focus on the Yellow River

itself and the environment around it. We want

to help our community better understand the

ecological significance of the Yellow River, and its

relationship to Marshall County history, as well as 

the larger geographic region.
