ANNOUNCEMENT

It is with regret that we must cancel OAKtoberfest with Marrakesh Express. We appreciated the excellent response received for the rained-out Saturday date but the newly rescheduled date on a Thursday is not producing an efficient response. Marrakesh Express has been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to better weather next year. We apologize for not being able to execute this event and will provide a full refund to any ticket holder. For a refund, please email info@taltree.org with your name and order number. You will receive your refund within 5 business days. Thank you for your understanding.

“I grew up in the city where even parks were rare. When I moved to Indiana a few years ago, I found a natural wonderland called Taltree. Taltree offers everything that I longed for, natural beauty, hiking trails and serenity. One visit to Taltree was all I needed. I became a member the next day. On occasion, I just sit on a bench and watch the grasses and trees gently blow in the wind, smell the flowers and listen to the birds sing…This is why I come to Taltree.”
