Treasure Hunt North Returns to South Bend

Hunt for treasure, or be a vendor, when Indiana Landmarks brings Treasure Hunt North back to South Bend on July 21.

Indiana Landmarks Treasure Hunt North

A Festival of Vintage

At Treasure Hunt North on July 21, you’ll find booths of antiques, collectibles and architectural salvage in a festival atmosphere, with roving entertainment and food to keep up your strength for hitting the yard sales throughout the West Washington National Register District. An architectural treasure hunt and kids’ activities offer fun and adventure for smaller guests. Be sure to check out vintage cars stationed throughout the area.

The event highlights the city’s West Washington National Register District, with an antiques market at Indiana Landmarks’ Kizer House, and activities, music and vendors at the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture, The History Museum, Studebaker National Museum, and Saint Paul’s Memorial Church. Members of the Near West Side Neighborhood Organization will host yard sales in the surrounding historic district.
