Experience that Magic of OZ at the 2020 Wizard of Oz Days in Chesterton, IN.

Follow the Yellow Brick Road to the Wizard of Oz Days in Chesterton, IN. The Wizard of Oz Days will be held on May 22/23, 2020 at the Duneland Falls Banquet & Event Center, 1100 North Max Mochal Highway (SR 149) in Chesterton, IN.

Come experience all the magic of L. Frank Baum’s book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The Festival will feature the nationally acclaimed, Spirit of Oz-Wizard of Oz Characters from Indiana. The largest Wizard of Oz Festival of its kind was created by Ms. Jean Nelson and was held in Chesterton for 31 years (1981-2012). That festival has long ceased. We look forward to honoring that long standing tradition and bringing the new Wizard of Oz Days on May 22/23, 2020.

You will get a chance to meet our Official Wizard of Oz characters inspired from the book like the Scarecrow, Dorothy Gale, Glinda, the good witch, the TinMan and the Cowardly Lion. Oh but wait, we forgot about the Wicked Witch of the West. She will be here too. You never know what friends you will meet along the Yellow Brick Road.

The 2020 Chesterton Wizard of Oz Days is proud to welcome Steven’s Puppets. If you have never witnessed an old fashioned marionette puppet show, you are in for a special treat. Nationally known puppeteer, Bob Walls will lead you through the fascinating story of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

The Wizard of Oz Days will also featured Ms. Mary Ellen St, Aubin, Munchkin by Marriage. At 99 years young, Mary Ellen stills wows crowds by her stories of her husband, Parnell and his roles in the 1939 classic movie, the Wizard of Oz.

And don’t forget about all the amazing vendors!
