The 5th annual Indy Folk Fest will take place on the second Saturday of August at Indy Hostel. One of the many goals for a festival like this is keeping neighborhood residents connected to the art, business, and culture of their community.
This year’s music lineup is an eclectic mix of some of Indy’s most notable musical acts, both established and up-and-coming:
Sweet Poison Victim
The festival will also feature a performance by Indy’s Emmy award-winning improvisational comedy troupe, INDYPROV.
Beer will be provided by Upland Brewing Co., food served by localfusion taqueria La Chicita Poblana, and ice cream will be scooped out by Broad Ripple favorite BRICS.
Various community businesses - particularly from the Broad Ripple area - will have booths, and local non-profit organization Freewheelin’ Community Bikes will be providing a special bike valet for our city’s many bikers. A portion on the proceeds will also be going to help Freewheelin' continue their mission of community development.
