FESTIVAL OF THE BELLS
July 4th, 5th and 6th
The Festival of the Bells, celebrated each 4th of July weekend in Hillsboro, Ohio, is an outgrowth of a successful 1976 Bicentennial celebration of the founding of our country. When local citizens were searching for a permanent name for a yearly celebration, it was noted that at one time Hillsboro was famous for the production of steel alloy bells, which were shipped around the world. Thus the name Festival of the Bells was established. The Festival has continued to provide three days of family friendly events, a variety of vendors and crafters, rides, games, and quality entertainment. Past performers have included well known Christian artists (sponsored by the local ministerial association and area churches), and chart-topping country musicians.
