What Time Is It In Indiana?
One of our frequent questions about our programs is "Is that my time or your time?". We hope this helps.
Pike County observes Eastern Daylight Time in summer and Eastern Standard Time in winter.
The only Indiana counties that are on Central Time are those those near Chicago (Jasper, Lake, La Porte, Newton, Porter & Starke) and Evansville (Gibson, Perry, Posey, Spencer, Vanderburgh & Warrick).
(Source: Indiana Time Zones, from the Indiana Government Web Site and also viewable here.)
All meetings, activities and events for Pike County will list the local time. If you live in one of the 12 counties observing Central Time, please adjust your schedule accordingly. (Examples - If an event starts at 6 pm Eastern Time, the event is at 5 pm Central. If an event is at 6 pm Central Time, the event is at 7 pm Eastern.)
For out-of-county meetings that do not specify the time zone, please call to confirm times.
Still not sure? Feel free to call our office at (812) 354-6838.
