2020 MONTH OF MAY UPDATE: All 500 Festival month of May events will NOT take place on their previously scheduled dates. This includes the Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Kids’ Day & Rookie Run. With new timing for the Indianapolis 500 recently announced by the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the 500 Festival is committed to providing a calendar of community events that precede the 2020 race.
We are working through a number of different scenarios and we will do everything possible to reschedule these events for later in the year. We will also continue to be mindful of the resources that help us produce these community events, including volunteers, medical personnel, IMPD, the Indiana National Guard, Homeland Security, Indianapolis Motor Speedway staff, corporate partners and many others. The 500 Festival will announce the new dates, event details and ticketing information for rescheduled events as soon as they are finalized. Thank you for your continued patience and support as we endeavor to keep the spirit of May relevant and meaningful in this challenging time for everyone.
Kids can stretch their minds and their muscles at the Salesforce & JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Kid’s Day! The state’s largest free outdoor festival just for kids, Kids’ Day offers fun, interactive, educational activities in a carnival-like atmosphere.
Attendees can also enjoy a wide range of entertainment and activities at the Entertainment Stage. From the Circle City Bucket Drummers to Naptown Stomp Swing Dances to Ballet Folklorico Mosaicos, there will be performances for all interests – hosted by your favorite radio personalities.
