Lose your mind at an Indy Eleven game
Lucas Oil Stadium
Yes, Indianapolis may be famous for both the Pacers and the Colts, but there is perhaps nothing more fun to attend than Indy Eleven soccer games thanks to the frenzied style of fan appreciation the Eleven inspires.

The first game of the season set attendance records with over 17,000 fans streaming through the doors.
Whether you want to wear shorts and bring your dinner in a takeout box or wear your cocktail best, the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra has a show where you’ll feel at home. Performing year-round, the outdoor Symphony on the Prairie concerts often draw record crowds, especially for Fourth of July concerts.

Maybe that’s the reason we have multiple burlesque troupes, from the Rocket Doll Revue to Angel Burlesque, with the White Rabbit serving as your ground zero of nudie appreciation, where the Rocket Dolls call home for their regular roundup of shows. Race fans and peel aficionados alike will appreciate their racing-themed May show, the Titty 500.
There’s no better time to visit Garfield Park than on Saturday mornings. In one fell swoop, you can get coffee, breakfast, and plenty of farm-fresh ingredients to make a bang-up dinner. When you’re done shopping, stash your stuff in the trunk and have a walk around the park and the Conservatory.
