Parking Lot Social at Waterman’s Farm Brings Fun to Your Car

The Parking Lot Social will be coming to Indianapolis’ Waterman’s Farms, beginning on Wednesday, August 5 through Sunday, August 9. This limited-engagement event modernizes the traditional drive-in experienced through a supersized, multi-sensory attraction.

With the ability to host up to 250 cars at each event, The Parking Lot Social represents the next evolution in the ‘drive-in’ experience and each tour stop will offer five nights of incomparable entertainment with the emphasis on having a fantastic night out while maintaining social distancing recommendations.

At the event’s core, and setting it apart from a traditional drive-in experience, is its unique, custom-designed performance space.  This spectacular installation is a blend of art and technology and consists of a fully covered stage, two 40 ft screens, a 52 ft tall Rainbow-Shooting Fire Hydrant, and two, larger than life, inflatable ‘Parking Lot Social’ gorillas!

Fun for everyone, The Parking Lot Social’s nightly entertainment is unique throughout its five-night experience in Indianapolis. With tickets beginning at $29, below are a highlight of each night’s entertainment schedule.

Amid the new landscape during the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing and safety for patrons of The Parking Lot Social have been at the forefront in the creation of this event. The entertainment enjoyed at The Parking Lot Social was created for patrons to enjoy without leaving the comfort of their vehicle. Below are the critical safety measures that will ensure the well-being of all attendees:

  • Ticketing & Check-In – All tickets for this event must be purchased online, and there will be no on-site box office. On arrival, customers will display tickets on their dashboard or via their phone, and these tickets will be scanned remotely to allow an utterly contactless check-in procedure.
  • Traffic Light Wristbands – A welcome pack will be placed on each car’s windshield once it has been safely parked. Within that packet will be separately colored wristbands for each attendee. Each color relates to four different 20-minute windows during the event, at which time the person wearing that color can leave their vehicle. This procedure ensures minimum foot traffic and avoids situations where too many people are out of their cars at the one time.
  • Field Capacity – There will be a 250-car capacity per event. Despite the expected demand and capability for much larger numbers, this allows the management of effective social distancing.
