The mission of the 500 Festival is to produce life-enriching events and programs that celebrate the spirit and legacy of the Indianapolis 500 and foster a positive impact on the city of Indianapolis and state of Indiana.
No other singular sporting event in the world has a legacy like the Indianapolis 500. No other event has shaped and defined a city and state and their people like the Indianapolis 500.
The 500 Festival, a not-for-profit community organization, was created in 1957 to organize civic events celebrating the greatest race in the world. Over the past 60+ years, the 500 Festival has grown to become one of the largest festivals in the nation.
Each year, 500,000 Hoosiers and visitors participated in festival activities throughout the month of May. Whether they were athletes running the Mini, fourth grade students participating in the Education Program, families enjoying the state’s largest festival for kids, or spectators being dazzled by one of the nation’s premier parades, they were there, celebrating the legacy.
ALL ARE WELCOME!
As an organization providing multiple events and programs, many of which are free to attend and impact over 500,000 people annually, our mission to enrich lives and positively impact our community is wholly inclusive and applies to everyone.
Whether attending the IPL 500 Festival Parade, participating in the JPMorgan Chase 500 Festival Kids’ Day, running in the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon or serving as a volunteer, the 500 Festival welcomes participation from everyone, and we’re confident that our participants will continue to experience the Hoosier hospitality that we pride ourselves on.
NATIONAL IN SCOPE, HOMEGROWN IN SPIRIT
Indianapolis is largely defined by the historic Indianapolis 500 and the grand community festival that surrounds it. With nearly 50 annual events and programs, the 500 Festival fuels the entire magical month of May.
DECADES OF COMMUNITY SERVICE
By offering a wide variety of cultural, educational and social events, the 500 Festival touches more than 500,000 people annually…and in such meaningful ways. Its signature events – like the IPL 500 Festival Parade and OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon – connect the community in large proportions…and showcase our city on a world stage.
QUALITY OF LIFE
The Festival delivers community spirit, volunteerism, participation, inclusion, entertainment, social connecting, business networking and even health initiatives.
NATIONAL MEDIA EXPOSURE AND TOURISM DRIVER
As one of the nation’s largest festivals, 500 Festival events draw both exposure and people. Families from across the globe attend the IPL 500 Festival Parade, which is nationally-televised on NBC Sports Network. The Parade is one of the nation’s three largest, along the likes of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and Pasadena Tournament of Roses. One of only a few nationally televised parades, it attracts an estimated 300,000 curbside spectators – locals and tourists alike.
With over 30,000 participants, The Mini is one of the nation’s largest half-marathons…and, it’s even larger than the famed Boston Marathon. The OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon alone draws more than 20,000 participants from outside greater Indianapolis, becoming more and more of a valuable tourism and economic impact driver. By getting nearly 35,000 moving…the Mini and 5k are very likely the state’s largest health initiatives…getting people focused on their health and well-being.
IT’S GOOD BUSINESS
The 500 Festival is a self-funded, not-for-profit organization deriving its revenue streams from ticket sales, event registrations, sponsorship and corporate memberships. Hundreds of local, regional and national companies participate in a variety of ways. And it works.

Alien Red Art
Hello, my name is Joshua Cornett as an artist I represent my self as Tha Alien Red(Alien Red Art) . I’ve had the ability to be creative for as long as I can remember. When I was a kid(4 or 5 y/o.) my dad would give me a pencil and paper, to keep me from causing trouble in church. As a kid in school, I would either be daydreaming, or doodling. For me it’s all about creating something that is amazingly, fantastic, and dope. It’s a love of exploring, different styles, different colors, and just coming up with art that is unique and original.

Its purpose has evolved to one of developing significant professional careers through its Fellowships by providing concerts, recordings, and other professional services. The New York Times has described its work as “profound early career assistance.”
The APA has awards one Jazz Fellowship and one Classical Fellowship in alternating two-year cycles. Recipients receive a cash prize, representation on a CD, promotional materials, and play concerts and recitals both nationally and internationally through the APA’s PianoFest program. Fellows also participate in education and community outreach programs called Concerto Curriculum. In 2010 The APA raised the cash prize for both competitions to $50,000, making the jazz award the largest prize in the world for a young American jazz pianist. The value of a two-year Fellowship is well over $100,000.
From 2003 through 2008, the American Pianists Association produced Indy Jazz Fest presented by Kroger.
The APA is a national, not-for-profit organization which has flourished because of its artistic reputation for selecting uniquely talented Fellows and producing high-caliber performances across the globe.

Artists' Studio - Center for the Performing Arts
The Artists’ Studio was founded in January, 2003 by Joellyn and David Young.
Artist: Craftsman, artisan. 1. A person who does anything very well, with imagination and a feeling for form and effect. 2. A person who works in, or is skilled in the techniques of any of the fine arts.
Studio: a room or rooms where an artist, musician, or photographer works. A room or rooms where dancing, music and drama lessons are given.
These are the principles upon which The Artists’ Studio is founded. It is our goal to provide a safe, nurturing environment for the artist to grow in his or her craft. We provide only professional instructors who have, or are currently working in the performing arts and related art environments. We provide different levels of instruction to encourage those who are new to performance art and to challenge and define those who have chosen the arts as a career or vocation.
The Arts are incredibly important to the total development of a human being. It has recently been discovered that children who study music have an easier time with mathematics and reasoning skills, those who study drama develop reading and memory skills at a faster rate, and of course, dance provides an athletic and cardio workout for any age.
If you or your child is currently looking for a place to discover their creativity, please come and visit The Artists’ Studio.
