The festival was titled "Saturday On The Square" in the '70s. It was to provide an opportunity for local and Central Indiana artisans to sell their wares/crafts and was under the supervision of local merchants around the square.
With the addition of the Friday night events, the name was changed to the "Back to the Fifties Festival, Inc." and the support of businesses was sought. Entertainment was secured as well as '50's classic cars, '50's exhibits in merchants' windows, library and the historic Boone County courthouse. The current logo was adopted in 2001 with the festival's expansion.
The Festival became incorporated in October, 2003 and has operated as an independent entity since November, 2003 with a not-for-profit status granted in September, 2004.
The Festival operates through the calendar year with an all-volunteer committee adding many community volunteers the weekend of the Festival. It is also a member of the Indiana State Festivals Association and the Boone County Chamber of Commerce.
The Festival's mission is to further the visual and performing arts in Boone County.
