Stuck for something to do this weekend? Start with one of Indy's most popular festivals, consider a concert among the critters, and then dig deeper into this week's A&E priority list.

Indian Market and Festival

June 22-23

Military Park

The Eiteljorg Museum of Indians and Western Art turns its back yard into a multifaceted festival grounds with music, storytelling, crafts (including pick bracelets inspired by the “Guitars” exhibition), dance (five-time world champion hoop dancer Tony Duncan) and more. A preview party Friday night includes a Southwest buffet, social time with artists, a chance to get in early bids on the work, and passes for the entire weekend. Details here

AACTfest

Through June 22

Center for the Performing Arts

Soon, some of the top names in musical theater will be either entertaining or honored at the Center for the Performing Arts (watch for more next week). This week, though, the center will house largely anonymous community theater creators from around the United States. They’ll be here for the American Association of Community Theaters’ annual conference. Why should you care? Well, while most theater companies go on summer hiatus, this is a chance to choose from 12 shows being performed—from a Grapevine, Texas, production of “Spring Awakening” to a Parkersburg, W.Va., take on “Tuesdays with Morrie.” Details here.

Zoolapalooza Concert Series

June 21

Indianapolis Zoo

The annual series returns with the first of five Friday night concerts free to zoo members and included with regular zoo admission. This year, the shows move to the open tent of the Party Pavilion, include Sun King beer sampling, shifting food options and free rides (on one of the actual rides, not the animals) until 7. First up, a June 21 performance by The Tides, accented by luau lettuce wraps and Hawaiian snow cones. Details here.

  1. I had read earlier this spring that Noodles & Co was going to open in the Fishers Marketplace (which is SR 37 and 131st St, not 141st St, just FYI). Any word on that? Also, do you happen to know what is being built in Carmel at Pennsylvania and Old Meridian? May just be an office building but I'm not sure.

  2. I'm sorry, but you are flat out wrong. There are few tracks in the world with the history of IMS and probably NO OTHER as widely known and recognized. I don't care what you think about the stat of Indy Car racing, these are pretty hard things to dispute.

  3. Also wondering if there is an update on the Brockway Pub-Danny Boy restaurant/taproom that was planned for the village as well?

  4. Why does the majority get to trample on the rights of the minority? You do realize that banning gay marriage does not rid the world of gay people, right? They are still going to be around and they are still going to continue to exist. The best way to get it all out of the spotlight? LEGALIZE IT! If gay marriage is legal, they will get to stop trying to push for it and you will get to stop seeing it all over the news. Why do Christians get to decide what is moral?? Why do you get to push your religion on others? How would legalizing gay marriage expose their lifestyle to your children? By the way, their lifestyle is going to continue whether gay marriage is legalized or not. It's been legal in Canada for quite a while now and they seem to be doing just fine. What about actual rules handed down by God? What about not working on Sundays? What about obeying your parents? What about adultery? These are in the 10 Commandments, the most important of God's rules. Yet they are all perfectly legal. What about divorce? Only God is allowed to dissolve a marriage so why don't you work hard to get divorce banned? Why do you get to pick and choose the parts of the Bible you care about?

  5. Look at the bright side. With the new Lowe's call center, that means 1000 jobs at $10 bucks an hour. IMS has to be drooling over all that disposable income. If those employees can save all their extra money after bills, in five years they can go to the race LIVE. Can you say attendance boost?
