We want everyone to have the best Indy Pride Festival possible, and to keep things running smoothly, here is some basic information to help you plan for Festival Day.
Festival tickets are available! Tickets can be purchased here.
Children 12 and Under will be admitted to the Festival for free when accompanied by an adult.
If you have a caregiver, that caregiver will be admitted to the Festival at no cost. If you have any accommodation needs please let us know when buying your ticket. We will do our best to accommodate those needs. If you have questions you can contact our accessibility team at firstname.lastname@example.org

Wheelchair accessible shuttles will be available. Click here to book.
Indy Pride is partnering with Lyft to offer convenient rideshare options for our attendees. Consider using Lyft to get to and from the Festival grounds utilizing a convenient drop-off and pick up zone.
No Outside Alcohol
While the law does allow alcohol sold at the festival to be taken out of the tents, you cannot bring in containers of alcohol; this is still against the law. There will be many vendors onsite to sell alcohol.
The June sun can be unrelenting. We encourage everyone to stay hydrated during the day; however, each guest is allowed one, non-alcoholic beverage brought in must be in their original, unopened container. No Travel Cups.
Indy Pride Fest is a tobacco-free festival for the health and safety of our attendees. If attendees choose to smoke, including e-cigarettes, please do so in the designated smoking areas located on the festival site map.
The Family Zone is designed for families with entertainment and vendors geared toward children and families. This is a smoke-free and alcohol-free zone. You will be asked to leave alcoholic drinks outside of the zone. Security may ask you to leave the festival if you are found with alcohol in the zone.
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.
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 Saturday, June 1st. (Trust us: Your pet will love it!)
All pets must be leashed. You assume full responsibility for your pet and your pet’s behavior.
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 Tent City and 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.
