Welcome to the City of Goshen

Welcome to the City of Goshen, Indiana. This comprehensive resource provides residents of our community and visitors quick access to information about local government, community planning, recreational activities, upcoming events and more.

"Everything comes together in Goshen...or more precisely, everybody. There's a special spirit that has always been here and it's wonderfully contagious. You'll see it all over town, from neighbors who help the new family on the block get moved in, to volunteers who help at a school.  People here are committed to working for the common good, which has helped make Goshen an uncommonly great place to live, work and visit.  We're a richly diverse community of folks, making this a place where you're as likely to live near young professionals as retirees, and as apt to meet friends at First Fridays as at a concert...at the college or just strolling downtown. But  what we share in common is the community ideal. Together, we've worked to make Goshen a place where business is good, manufacturing thrives, downtown bustles, artists create, entrepreneurs reach global markets, families find a friendly environment, good things take root, and people pitch in to make it better. It's altogether different because we're all in it together. Some say Goshen is the way America used to be. We say it's the way to an uncommonly robust future."
