Each year, Indy Parks and Recreation produces a full season of music, movies and more for you and your family. Featuring a wide variety of artistic styles - classical and popular, fun and romantic, hot and smooth - we bring it all to a comfortable outdoor setting near you. From folk music at Eagle Creek Park to jazz and blues at Watkins Park, there is a colorful selection of concerts and artists for all. Most events are free, and all feature gifted local and regional artists that you're sure to enjoy.
