COUNTDOWN TO 2016

About

THE MOST EXCITING NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY IN INDY!

Get ready for an unforgettable party! The three blocks of Georgia Street and part of Pennsylvania will be shut down to traffic for one giant block party with you and 30,000 of your closest friends and family! Downtown Indy’s New Year’s Eve offers an exciting entertainment line-up, stimulating sights, plenty of food and drink and a unique midnight extravaganza. Headliner Kap Slap will bring his electronic dance music craze to Downtown Indy, plus see performances from Dave and Whitney, Izzy and the Rubbaband and Corey Cox. Enjoy access to full bars and food trucks throughout the night.

At 11:59 p.m., when in most cities the traditional “ball drop” takes place, a suspended IndyCar hoisted high above the crowd will descend to a collective countdown amidst great fanfare and fireworks at midnight. One lucky person will race away just seconds after midnight in a street-legal IndyCar ushering in the march to the 100th Running of the famed Indianapolis 500 on May 29, 2016.

Revelers can step inside and out of the cold into Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Hoosier Lottery Countdown Pavilion presented by the Hoosier Lottery will include live music from Corey Cox plus plenty of food and beverage.

Bring your party hats. Make some noise. Count down to the fireworks and midnight Georgia Street “ball drop”!
