Where can I buy tickets? You can purchase tickets online up until the time of the event each day. Tickets can be purchased in person at the festival either at the outdoor entrance on Woodlawn Ave. or inside Square Cat Vinyl at 1054 Virginia Ave.
Where are the stages? There are two stages at this year's festival. The outdoor stage will be located near the intersection of Woodlawn Ave. and Shelby St. in the Fountain Square neighborhood. The indoor stage will be inside Square Cat Vinyl at 1054 Virginia Ave.
Where can I park? There are a variety of parking options in and around Fountain Square. All the public parking lots in the neighborhood are free. The street parking in the neighborhood is also free.
Besides driving, how else can I get to the festival? The festival grounds sit adjacent to a Red Line bus stop for IndyGo. We are also adjacent to the Cultural Trail, which is a bike/walk path throughout the downtown Indianapolis area, so there are plenty of easy non-driving transportation options.
Are there any restrictions on what I can bring into the festival? No outside alcohol or non-water drinks are permitted within the festival grounds. You may bring water bottles into the festival grounds. You may also bring portable seating into the festival grounds if you'd like. We will not be doing specific bag checks, but we will do checks of items if something appears suspicious or potentially dangerous.
Where do I enter the festival? You can enter the festival either at the outdoor entrance on Woodlawn Ave. adjacent to Bovaconti Coffee or at Square Cat Vinyl.
Are there any COVID restrictions? We will not be performing any COVID vaccination checks or mask requirements. You are more than welcome to wear a mask if you'd like.
What food and drink will be available? We will have two food trucks serving food at the fest. One is a vegan food truck. We will have an outdoor bar serving beer and inside Square Cat we will have beer, cider, seltzers, coffee, and tea drinks. We will allow outside food to be brought in if you'd like. All food will need to stay in the outdoor area of the festival. There will be no food allowed inside Square Cat.
Is this a rain or shine event? Yes. The Ballyhoo will go on rain or shine. The stage locations and set times may adjust slightly if we have some inclement weather, but the event will not be cancelled for weather purposes.
