Festival Day Rules & Tips

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.

 

Ticket Prices

Festival tickets will be available shortly! Prices will be $5.

Children 12 and Under will be admitted to the Festival for free when accompanied by an adult.

 

Accessibility

If you have a caregiver, that caregiver will be admitted to the Festival at no cost. If you have any accommodation needs please let use 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 accessibility@indypride.org

 

Festival Hours

The Festival hours will be 11am-11pm on Saturday, June 9th.

 

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 any vendors onsite to sell alcohol.

 

Non-Alcoholic Beverages

The June sun can be unrelenting. We encourage everyone to stay hydrated during the day; however, any non-alcoholic beverages brought in must be in their original, unopened container. No Travel Cups.

 

Tobacco-Free Festival

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.

 

Family Zone

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

Purses, backpacks and other bags are allowed and will be subject to search; however, COOLERS are not to exceed 18 inches by 14 inches by 14 inches (18” x 14” x 14”).

 

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 Saturday, June 2nd at the Eiteljorg. (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 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 in the east side of the park.

 

No Fireworks, Flares, or Firearms

In accordance with all federal, state, and municipal laws, 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 to 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 Fest and Indy Pride, Inc. No personal golf carts are permitted.

 

Safety & Security

There will be medical assistance tent available within the park. They will also be roving the park offering help to those in need. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, Marion County Sheriff Department and Indiana Excise will be on hand for security needs, and they will have the power to eject and/or arrest patrons who are breaking the law.

If at any time you need emergency assistance and cannot find a medical or law enforcement agent, please find an official Indy Pride/Indy Pride Fest official.

 

Smile!

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