Welcome to the City of Evansville, Indiana.
Evansville is the third largest city in Indiana with hometown values at its core. Situated alongside the beautiful Ohio River, Evansville originated in 1812 and has been on the move ever since. Elected in 2011, Mayor Lloyd Winnecke is proud to serve as a voice for Evansville’s 117,000 citizens.
Evansville offers a vast variety of interesting things to do and see. The city is the regional hub for health care services, shopping, entertainment, the arts and cultural activities. The community is honored to be home to the University of Evansville, the University of Southern Indiana and Ivy Tech Community College, and corporate headquarters for Berry Plastics and Mead Johnson Pharmaceuticals.
When it comes to fun, Evansville has more than enough to satisfy anyone. We have multiple annual events that draw huge crowds and offer something for the whole family, such as the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival, Frog Follies and Shriners Fest. The city is a proud fan of The Evansville IceMen, an ECHL hockey team also affiliated with the NHL Columbus Blue Jackets. We are equally proud to host the Evansville Otters baseball team which is a part of the Frontier League.
The city offers some of Indiana’s most beloved parks for the adventurous visitor. Mesker Park Zoo & Botanic Garden, Wesselman Woods Nature Preserve, Angel Mounds and Pigeon Creek Greenway are just a few of the top attractions. Whether you are looking for a night on the town or a quiet afternoon on the river, Evansville has a place for you.
