500 Festival Breakfast at the Brickyard

presented by Midwestern Engineers, Inc.


Honor Indiana’s mayors, hear from racing legends

Once a year, racing fans, business leaders, Indiana mayors, and the 33 500 Festival Princesses gather at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for an action-packed, Hoosier tradition – the 500 Festival Breakfast at the Brickyard, presented by Midwestern Engineers, Inc. The morning’s festivities kick off by honoring Indiana’s mayors. Mayor of Indianapolis, Joe Hogsett, hosts 70+ mayors from all corners of Indiana as we salute these civic leaders for their tireless work in advancing Hoosier communities.

As guests enjoy their traditional Hoosier breakfast, they’ll hear from Indianapolis Motor Speedway and 500 Festival executives and listen in as racing legends take the stage. At the conclusion of the event, the 500 Festival Queen Scholar will be announced.
