Top June Events
The first day of summer is just around the corner and so are some of Bloomington’s biggest annual events. No matter when you visit this June you’ll have plenty of opportunities to listen to live music, eat great food and enjoy the great outdoors. Check out some of these exciting events in June.
The first commercial quarry on record was opened in 1827 near the town of Stinesville, approximately 20 miles west of Bloomington. Since then, Indiana's limestone industry has grown to supply the majority of all high-quality building grade limestone for use in the United States. Additionally, the culture and heritage of limestone have permeated the area around the rich deposits of the high-quality stone, known as Salem Limestone. Explore the history of limestone with quarry tours, architectural history walks, and events. Limestone Month kicks off tomorrow with a tour of historic limestone buildings on the Indiana University campus. Check out all of the events here.
