Back-to-School Festival

July 25, 2017

The Indiana Historical Society and Indianapolis Public Schools are teaming up to make sure students have a positive start to the new school year. Jumpstart a year of learning by visiting the Indiana Experience, including our interactive You Are There exhibits, Destination Indiana's virtual time travel technology, live music in the Cole Porter Room and much more.

A highlight of the Back-to-School Festival will be a school fair providing resources on topics ranging from after-school activities and mentoring to scholarships and tutoring. The fair will also feature a booth by Enroll Indy, an organization affiliated with IPS, focused on helping families with school selection and registration.

Medical services will include required back-to-school vaccines, available through Franciscan Health. Vaccines are free with proof of Medicaid. There is no out-of-pocket cost for guests in the Franciscan Health Network. Otherwise, there’s a small cost of $10 each. Also, a licensed dentist, with the mobile group Dental Safari Company, will provide student exams complete with cleanings, fluoride treatments and sealants, as needed.

Performances by Traci's Urban Jamm Dance Studio will take place inside the Frank and Katrina Basile Theater. Outside the History Center, the Pacers Fan Van will feature games, prizes and the chance for fans to measure their hand and foot sizes against those of a Pacers player.

Free admission is available to all History Center visitors.
