The Village of Metamora, home to 565 residents, is known far and wide for its quaint downtown and a place where you can escape from the fast pace of city life to the old-town atmosphere.
The four corners in Metamora are a destination for both area residents and out-of-town guests.
Known as “horse country” among the hills, the community is home to dozens of horse stables and boarding facilities and has long celebrated its equestrian heritage.
In the village, Harmer Park is the site of a summertime “Music in the Park” series. The park also hosts a Christmas-tree lighting ceremony among other holiday events. A summertime car show on Oak Street is growing in popularity among auto buffs.
Metamora Country Days & Hot Air Balloon Festival is the community’s grand celebration. This late summer heritage event includes a parade, crafters, equestrian events, food, music and a spectacular assembly and launch of colorful hot air balloons.
