No Outside Alcohol

While the law does allow alcohol sold at the Festival to be taken out of the bar tents, you cannot bring in containers of alcohol; this is still against the law. There will be many vendors onsite to sell alcohol.

Non-Alcoholic Beverages

The June sun can be unrelenting. We encourage everyone to stay hydrated during the day. Each guest is allowed one, non-alcoholic beverage brought in must be in their original, unopened container.

Tobacco-Free Festival

Indy Pride Festival is a tobacco-free festival for the health and safety of our attendees. If attendees choose to smoke, including e-cigarettes or vaping, please do so in the designated smoking areas located on the Festival site map.

Family Zone

The Family Zone is designed for families with entertainment and vendors geared toward children and families. This is a smoke-free, family-friendly area, so please be courteous when visiting this space.

Bags, Coolers & Food

Coolers are not allowed. Purses and backpacks are allowed and will be subject to search. Pre-packaged food is allowed into the Festival.

Pets

While we do not ban pets, we ask that you think twice about bringing your pet(s) due to the large crowds and typically extreme heat. We encourage you to check out Pet Pride for a very pet-friendly event on June 4th. (Trust us: Your pet will love it!)

All pets must be leashed. You assume full responsibility for your pet and your pet’s behavior.

No Nudity

While we do not want to limit self-expression, the local laws need to be followed. We ask you to observe the simple rule of swimsuit covering. If you can wear it to a public pool you are good to go.

Personal Items = Personal Responsibility

You are solely responsible for your personal items, including the items left in unattended canopies and tents, including cabanas. You assume all risk of their loss or damage. Lost and Found will be located at the Info Tent located at the Pavilion on the east side of the park.

No Fireworks, Flares, or Firearms

Weapons, including firearms and ammunition, of any kind are not permitted. Fireworks and flares are also not permitted.

Other Items Not Permitted: Illegal drugs, open flames, grills or cooking of any kind, bicycles, ATVs, scooters, or motorcycles.

No Unauthorized/Unregistered Vending of Any Kind

No Unauthorized Solicitations, Handbills, Sampling, Giveaways, posting of signs or placards on any surface. We welcome you to register as a Vendor next year.

Golf Carts

Golf carts are reserved for the exclusive use of emergency staff, security, and official representatives of Indy Pride Festival and Indy Pride, Inc. No personal golf carts are permitted.

Safety & Security

There will be medical assistance tent available within the park. Medical teams will also be roving the park offering help to those in need.

If at any time you need emergency assistance and cannot find a medical or security agent, please find an official Indy Pride/Indy Pride Festival representative.

Smile!

Promotional videos and photos will be taken at all events, including the Indy Pride Parade and the Indy Pride Festival.
