About Rivers and Roads Artisan Trail


The Rural-Urban Entrepreneurship Development Institute (RUEDI) is convening a group to develop an Artisan Trail in West Central Indiana named The Rivers and Roads Artisan Trail to showcase our local Indiana Artisans.



The goals of this trail are to:

  • Encourage Economic Development through small business and Artisan Entrepreneurship.
  • Raise awareness about the talent  and availability of locally-crafted products in West Central Indiana.
  • Provide West Central artisans, particularly those in rural areas, with access to entrepreneurial support.
  • Promote cultural tourism to West Central Indiana.


A showcase of West Central Indiana's best

The Rivers and Roads Artisan Trail will work with participants, retailers and our communities to showcase and sell high-quality, handcrafted products in selected stores and on the trail.  You do not need to be certified through Indiana Artisan to be a part of the Rivers and Roads Artisan Trail.
