Festivals & Events

Decatur knows how to put on a party and to celebrate our community spirit, our American pride, and our city’s heritage. We combine music, food, entertainment of all kinds, and spectacular fireworks shows for citizens and visitors alike. There’s something going on all year round.

For more information on Decatur’s festivals and events, please visit the Decatur-Morgan County Convention & Visitors Bureau website.
