Circle SPARK Fest

Presented by Big Car and Downtown Indy at Monument Circle

You’ll find Indianapolis-based artists and artisan vendors, live music, performance art, pumpkin decorating, and lots more at this festival. On Saturday, bands playing are Radar Gold, Books & Straight As, Vertice, and The Brothers Footman. On Sunday, you’ll hear Addie Kosten, Beatty and the Bayonets, Kristen Bales, and Ricardo.

Big Car’s Wagon of Wonders will be there with a variety of outdoor furniture for gathering and celebrating art, creativity, and harvest time.

Artist Derek Tuder will bring his mobile art gallery and selfie studio.

What’s this?
Big Car Collaborative and Downtown Indy have teamed up with the City of Indianapolis — with support from the Capital Improvement Board and the Indiana War Memorials Commission— to spark Monument Circle with human-scale activities like games, live music, artmaking, and socializing in a comfortable place. Everything is free for people to enjoy.

We started this round of SPARK in the last week of June. We’ll be going through the end of October — Mondays through Thursdays 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Fridays 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

In September: we add 5-9 pm Wednesdays and Circle SPARK Festival on Oct. 22-23 (Saturday and Sunday). Our last day will be Oct. 28.

We’re focusing on getting folks outside and together to enjoy the cooler fall weather in October with lots of events and programs — including new additions on Wednesday evenings with walks and live music.
