Welcome to the 61st Annual Tipp City Mum Festival

A message from the 2021 Mum Festival President

Return of the MUMmy Art
On behalf of the Mum Festival committees and volunteers, I am honored to welcome you to the 2021 Tipp City Mum Festival. 2021 is a year of anniversaries and milestones for Tipp City and the surrounding area.

This year I am honored to preside as president over the 62nd annual Tipp City Mum Festival. This year we also celebrate the 42nd annual Run for the Mums as well as the 203rd anniversary of the founding of Monroe Township. In honor of these anniversaries, the theme of this year’s Mum Festival is Return of the MUMmy Festival ’21.

On Sunday, September 4th, the 13th annual Mum Festival Motorcycle Charity ride takes place. All proceeds from this run benefit the Tipp City Needy Basket. A check will be presented to Needy Basket during the Mum Festival on Sunday afternoon, September 26th.

Festival weekend events begin Friday, September 24th at 4 p.m. with the 29th annual Antique and Show Car Cruise-In. This is one of the bigger car shows in the area and the largest festival car show in Ohio.

Saturday morning, September 25th, the festivities begin with the 41st annual Run for the Mums at 8 a.m. in the City Park, followed by the annual Mum Festival parade. The parade route travels down Main Street through historic downtown Tipp City. The parade begins at 10 a.m. with local and surrounding area bands, floats, clowns, classic cars, and many other entertaining units.

After the parade, be sure to visit the festival at Tipp City Park, located at the intersection of North Third Street and Parkwood Drive. Visitors to the festival in the park will find over 250 booths with great arts and crafts, delicious treats, and a wide variety of merchants. We also have a large stage providing wonderful entertainment by the best local talent. The park will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.

The Little Miss and Mister Mum will be part of the entertainment on the Main Stage on Saturday, September 25th from 3:45 to 4:30 p.m. We know all the participants will love the added audience and we believe all festival-goers will enjoy seeing our future leaders vie for their respective crowns.

Children, big and small, will enjoy the 19th annual Mum Kids Land presented by the Greenville Federal Bank on the tennis courts inside the park. Allow the kids to burn off some energy while playing on the inflatables and participate in other activities from noon to 8 p.m. on Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday.

I want to thank the committees and the volunteers for the tireless effort and dedication. Furthermore, I want to thank our numerous sponsors for their generous contributions to the Mum Festival. Without the help and support of these people and organizations, the Mum Festival would not be possible. Again, we thank everyone for their support and I hope you enjoy the 62nd annual Tipp City Mum Festival.

Corey Rismiller

2021 Tipp City Mum Festival President
