Local Attractions

The Symposium thanks our partners at the (@) Hendrick Country Visitors Bureau for this great local guide

Need something quick while you’re here? There’s a Walmart Supercenter just an 8 minute walk away from site. Just a little further west, you’ll find a Dollar General and Ferguson Do It Best Hardware. Go a bit further and you’ll be in Danville’s city center where there are fast food restaurants, a Kroger Grocery, auto parts and oil change options, a laundromat, coffeehouses, and more.

If there’s an emergency, the nearest emergency room is Hendricks Regional Health, a little over half a mile away.

Need something else while you’re visiting us? Ask any resident of the Barony of Sternfeld, we’ll be happy to help! (We’re working on a way to easily identify ourselves.)


Why not extend your trip and make it a vacation in beautiful Central Indiana? The event site is located in Danville, Indiana, 25 miles from the center of Indianapolis and surrounded by a vibrant collection of small towns with lots to offer. There is so much to do in an Indiana summer!

Check out the local towns of Avon, Brownsburg, and Plainfield here or head to Indianapolis, the nation’s 12th-largest city for lots more exciting fun!
