Indianapolis in May
Indianapolis in May is more than one event. So, don’t touch that dial. This isn’t just another Indy 500 blog post. Sure, I mention THE race in this post, but also many other events, sights, and activities. Although May at the Indianapolis Speedway holds a special place for Hoosiers and racing fans from around the world, it’s not the only game in town—just the biggest. Besides, one can’t spend all of May at the track, can they?
Arts and Science
There’s too much to list: The Andy Warhol exhibit at Eiteljorg Museum, the Orangutan compound at Indianapolis Zoo, and the Butterfly enclosure at White River Gardens. There’s an 1890s railroad display at the Children’s Museum. Or you can step into a metaverse at THE LUME and then explore the grounds of Newfields, and that’s only the beginning.
May will bring concerts from Journey, Toto, Don McClean, Kenney Chesney, Miranda Lambert, and more to Indy. Whether it’s jazz, rock, classical from the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, or hip-hop—Indy offers musical venues and performances to fit every taste.
Theater is alive and well in Indy. Steel Magnolias at the Indiana Repertory Theatre, dance and music at the Center for Performing Arts, and a bevy of performances at Clowes Hall and The District Theatre are only a few of the theatres offering a variety of entertainment.
Sports and Activities
Victory Field, home to the Indianapolis Indians, has been recognized as America’s best minor league stadium. If you want to participate, there’s the Mini-Marathon. You can take a leisurely stroll along the canal or join me for a hike in Eagle Creek Park, one of the largest and most beautiful city parks in America. That little race we have in May, the Indianapolis 500, isn’t the only race in town. On May 14th, Indy car will showcase the Grand Prix of Indianapolis.
As this piece progressed, it became apparent that it would be impossible to include every worthy event held this May in Indianapolis—so I’ll leave that up to the pros.

Whether you live in Indianapolis or are visiting, I hope you have a wonderful Indy in May.
