The Hancock County Visitors Bureau is charged with promoting the cultural, historical, artistic and commercial amenities of Hancock County, Indiana! We aim to increase tourism, visitation, conventions, and participation for various special events for the economic benefit of Hancock County, and the enrichment of life for visitors and residents alike.
Located in historic Hancock County, HCVB is conscious of the community’s links to the history and development of early Indiana. The county seat, Greenfield, IN, is bisected by the Historic National Road (U.S. 40), and much of its downtown area has been recognized as a National Register Historic District, too. Greenfield is the site of Hoosier Poet James Whitcomb Riley’s boyhood home and takes much of its character from the influence of Riley’s legacy and the Victorian era in which he lived.
Hancock County, a rapidly growing area, is also home to an active and expanding arts community and is the site of Greenfield’s annual Riley Festival, one of the largest festivals of its kind in Indiana.
The HCVB was established in January 2002 and is actively working to develop and promote additional arts/cultural events and facilities that will enhance the local experience for all who visit or reside in our community.
The Hancock County Visitors Bureau is located on the second floor of the H.J. Ricks Centre for the Arts at 122 W. Main St. in Greenfield, IN.
