Josiah for President
Amish Country Politics
3 Days | March 15 - July 24, 2024
Starting At $Flexible Pricing
Can an Amish Candidate win the Presidency? Is old-fashioned common sense, and a roll-up-your sleeves work ethic what this Country needs? Can a man of plain faith turn the tide of politics? And what will he have to risk to do it? In the 2024 election year, it’s our guess that Josiah’s Campaign will be the most fun. Join us in Indiana’s Amish Country at the Blue Gate Theater for a little musical campaigning.
We are happy to accommodate Groups who want to add a night or two, or further customize their trip.

Day 2 – Guided Amish Countryside Tour – Josiah for President w/Lunch – Cook’s Bison Ranch Tour & BBQ Dinner
This morning, meet your local guide for a tour of the Amish Countryside. Travel the scenic back roads passing horse drawn buggies, tidy farm homes and white washed barns. Learn about the fascinating lifestyle of the Amish as your knowledgeable guide tells all about the area and the history, traditions, and customs of the Amish.
Next, enjoy delicious lunch at the Blue Gate Inn Restaurant before a matinee performance of “Josiah for President” at the Blue Gate Theatre. The plot begins with a politician, a disenchanted Presidential candidate and his meeting with Josiah Stoltzfus an Amish Farmer. The Congressman decides that Josiah’s old-fashioned common sense, and roll-up-your sleeves work ethic is just what this Country needs and he is determined to run him as a candidate for the Presidency. But can Josiah get elected? Can a man of plain faith turn the tide of politics? And what will he have to risk to do it? In the 2024 election year, it’s our guess that Josiah’s Campaign will be the most fun.
End the day with a tour of Cook’s Bison Ranch. Here you will enjoy a Chuckwagon BBQ Dinner and a wagon tour of the farm. Explore the pasture and enjoy the chance to hand feed the great American Bison in its own habitat. Learn the intricacies of raising, feeding, and managing this wild animal. (B,L,D)
