Monument Circle


The 500 Festival & Indianapolis Motor Speedway welcome the magical month of May with their Kickoff to May event at Monument Circle. From Indianapolis Colts Punter, Pat McAfee, to the Indy Eleven, to our most lovable mascots, you never know WHO will kickoff the Month of May or HOW they’ll do it!

The celebration starts with the arrival of the Chevy #FestivalCars, led by the 2019 Indianapolis 500 Pace Car. Join fellow fans on Monument Circle as Indiana Pacers’ Mascot Boomer performs stunts and dunks into May!

At the Kickoff to May, you can also enjoy food from some of Indy’s favorite food trucks, pick up prizes from exhibitors, get photos with the #FestivalCars and more! This event is free and open to the public.
