Friends Who Are Going
Event description


Welcome to the 2017 Circle City IN Pride Festival! We are excited about the changes to this year's CCINP Festival. First, we have moved! We are happy to have relocated to Historic Military Park at White River State Park. We are near the IUPUI Campus. Below are some tips and rules for the Festival.

Ticket Prices

This year, the Circle City IN Pride Festival is implementing a ticket for the event. Tickets are $4 in advance and $5 at the gate. Ticket sales go to the overall success of the Festival, which is the largest fundraiser for Indy Pride, Inc., and supports educational programs, scholarships, the Chris Gonzalez Library, and financial contributions to other LGBTQ+ organizations in central Indiana. There are no refunds as this is a rain or shine event.

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


In recognition of the barriers to participation that are unique to the disability community, it is the policy of Circle City IN Pride Festival to reasonably accommodate our patrons with disabilities affording them the equal opportunity to participate in and enjoy festival activities. Therefore, any patrons with disabilities that require personal care attendants who are accompanying them (who would otherwise not be able to independently access the venue and it's amenities) receive free admission so long as the patron they are accompanying has an admission ticket. Any further accessibility needs or questions that you may have can be directed to Elizabeth Longcore at accessibility@indypride.org.

Festival Hours

The Festival hours will be 12-11pm on Saturday, June 10th.

No Outside Alcohol

Only alcohol purchased at the Festival may be consumed on the Festival grounds. Beverage tickets can be purchased in advance when you buy your Festival ticket. Beverage tickets will also be available to purchase throughout the park.

Non-Alcoholic Beverages

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

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 finish or dispose of alcoholic drinks before entering 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. Coolers are also allowed in the Festival but may not exceed 18 inches by 14 inches by 14 inches (18” x 14” x 14”).


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 on Saturday, June 3rd at the Eiteljorg Museum. (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, local laws must 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, tents, 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.

Children must be supervised at all times.

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. You will be asked to leave the Festival.

No unauthorized solicitations, handbills, sampling, giveaways, posting of signs or placards to any surface. You will be asked to leave the Festival. 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 Circle City IN Pride and Indy Pride, Inc. No personal golf carts are permitted.

Safety & Security

There will be a medical assistance tent available within the park. Security and safety 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. These agencies 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/Circle City IN Pride Festival.


In case of any emergency please follow the directions of volunteers, staff and security.


Promotional videos and photos will be taken at all events, including the Cadillac Barbie IN Pride Parade and the Circle City IN Pride Festival.
