The estimated price tag on a weekend in New Harmony varies wildly. If you’re looking for equity theatre, world-class concerts, plein air fine art sale, professional lecture series, a screenplay Chautauqua or a spot to host your spiritual retreat, you’re in luck. We can do all that and at respectable market rate.

But have you been to our town on a whim? No plans or reservations? No season tickets? One of New Harmony’s great gifts is that it can be enjoyed last minute, freeform and FREE.

This is Utopia DIY: no stress and no sticker shock.
