Summer Fun

Our Concerts on the Canal series is Indy’s favorite Thursday night summer hangout! This year, see your local favorites – from Hopkins and Miller to Living Proof.

The Stardust Terrace Café, outdoor grill and cash bar, operated by Hoaglin To Go, open at 5 p.m. Guests may bring their own food and nonalcoholic beverages to the concerts. All alcohol must be purchased and consumed on site. Free seating is available on the grassy area on the Canal Walk. Tables for 8 are $50, $40 for members. Tables for 4 are $40, $30 for members. Single seats at a community table are $10, $8 for members. Half- and full-season packages are available. Event reservations are valid for the date and/or event of issue; no rain checks will be permitted. No pets and no smoking are allowed on the terrace. Free parking at the History Center is on a first-come basis.

In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be delayed or moved indoors to the Frank and Katrina Basile Theater. No food or drink will be allowed at indoor concerts, and only registered guests may be accommodated.
For reservations, contact the Welcome Center at (317) 232-1882 or reserve online.
