A message from the 2023 Mum Festival President
On behalf of the Mum Festival committee and the countless volunteers, it is my honor as the President to welcome you to the 2023 Mum Festival! The theme this year is “Tipp City Library: 100 years of Stories” in honor of our Tipp City Library’s 100 years of service to our community.
The Mum Festival holds a special place in our hearts. It gives both the citizens and our wonderful businesses of Tipp City an opportunity to highlight our special town and parks. It also gives patrons a chance to experience one of the best American festivals in Ohio. Please come celebrate with us at this year’s festival and enjoy the wonderful sights, sounds, and smells this festival and our town has to offer.
Look forward to seeing you there,
