The Indianapolis 500

Indianapolis Motor Speedway put Indiana on the map in 1911 with the first racing of the Indy 500. A Memorial Day tradition was born, which continues attracting racing fans to the Circle City.

With a history including over 100 years of racing, the Indianapolis 500 continues as one of the top motorsports events in the world. When the call "start your engines" rings out in Indianapolis, it's the unofficial kick off to summer for racing fans.

A trip to the 500 is now more than one of the world's most famous auto races. The 500 Festival celebrates with diversity of events including the 500 Festival Mini-Marathon, 5K, and Rookie Run for the active.

The 500 Festival Kids' Day is a must for families along with the 500 Festival Parade Saturday preceding the Indy 500. Learn the words to "Back Home Again in Indiana" and bring multicolored balloons to release and thrill at the excitement of The Indianapolis 500.
