Welcome to “Indiana’s Dogwood Capital”

Annual Orleans Dogwood Festival

Festival Dates:  April 20-27, 2024 

Sponsored by the Orleans Chamber of Commerce

The Dogwood Tree is the trademark of little Orleans (Pop. 2,107).  “Operation Dogwood” launched by townspeople in the mid-1960s, has succeeded in it’s goal of having hundreds of trees
planted along roads, in parks, and in the yards.  The annual Dogwood Festival held in late April celebrates Orleans as the “Dogwood Capital of Indiana”.
