17th Annual Kamm Island Fest


KIF 2021



The Board of Directors of the Mishawaka Business Association is hosting its 17th Annual Kamm Island Fest. This year’s festival is scheduled for Wednesday, July 21st, 2021 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Kamm Island Fest is a staple of Mishawaka’s summer entertainment season and draws upon the rich history of Kamm Island and the development of Mishawaka’s River Walk. The goal of Kamm Island Fest is to highlight the offerings of locally owned businesses while providing a venue for ‘direct to consumer’ interaction with product/services of event sponsors and participants. A portion of the proceeds from the event are distributed to local civic and charitable groups and a portion is used to underwrite and develop on-going MBA activities. Kamm Island Fest is the main fundraiser for the MBA. Its success is key in supporting the MBA mission as a resource and advocate for the Association’s members.

Unlike other summer events or festivals in Mishawaka, KIF is an adult only event. Admission to the island is limited to age 21 and over.

Here are several highlights from Kamm Island Fest 2021, Sponsored by United Beverage and Budweiser!

  1. “Taste of Mishawaka.” An opportunity to experience the flavor of local restaurants. Sponsored by Visit South Bend Mishawaka.
  2. “Live Music” The Fest will feature the music of BLAMMO and The Grooveheads.
  3. “Car Show” showcasing a wide variety of classic cars.
  4. “Art Show” featuring local artists under the “Big Top!” Sponsored by Lawson-Fisher Associates, P.C.
  5. VIP Experience – Sponsored by Burns Rent Alls

Along with entrance into the VIP tent and its amenities, the VIP ticket holder also has a separate line for the bars and food vendors outside the VIP tent, so the benefit extends beyond the VIP tent. The only catch is the VIP tickets are limited, so you will want to secure yours early.

The Kamm Island Fest Committee has designed several opportunities that will allow any business, no matter its size, to support the 2021 KIF. Our sponsorship packages start at $100 and each level can be customized to meet your business needs.

To take advantage of one of the following sponsorship opportunities available to promote your business and be involved in the biggest event happening in Downtown Mishawaka, contact the Mishawaka Business Association office at 259-1833. We will be more than happy to discuss the possibilities with you.

Kamm Island Fest is the most anticipated event for ages 21 and over in the City. Along with The City of Mishawaka, Mayor Dave Wood, and the Mishawaka City Council & City Clerk, we hope you will support this premier event. Thank you in advance for your support and we’ll see you on the island!

Kindest Regards,
Kamm Island Fest Committee
