Spark!Fishers festival kicks off next week  

The weeklong Spark!Fishers festival presented by Meijer returns to Fishers’ Nickel Plate Cultural District this summer. Kicking off on Monday, June 24, and running through Saturday, June 29, the festival offers ways for the community to celebrate Independence Day traditions while showcasing what it means to be uniquely Fishers.  

This year, attendees will enjoy a new schedule of events, including the popular drone show now scheduled to close out the Tuesday concert, and a fireworks display to conclude the concert on Friday night at the Nickel Plate District Amphitheater. Also new this year, a 1-Mile Walk/Run welcomes participants of all ages and abilities alongside the Spark!Fishers 5k.  

This year’s Spark!Fishers parade grand marshal is Indy Ignite, Indiana’s first professional volleyball team, which will be based at the new Fishers Event Center set to open in fall 2024. Indy Ignite’s debut season is scheduled to begin in January 2025. 
With the opening of the new Fishers Municipal Center, which includes City Hall and the Fishers Art Center, visitors can enjoy free programming from the Fishers Arts Council, Fishers Arts & Cultural Commission, and Fishers Art Center during Saturday’s events. This includes art galleries featuring works by the celebrated Hoosier artist, writer, and cultural icon, Kurt Vonnegut Jr., alongside high-quality demonstrations, interactive activities, and performances by local performing arts groups.  

For Saturday’s festivities, Spark!Fishers attendees are encouraged to park at the FORUM Conference Center (11313 USA Parkway) and take the free shuttle running from 2 to 10 p.m. Shuttles will stop between 5 and 7 p.m. due to the parade at 6 p.m. Shuttles will resume at 7 p.m. and end at 10 p.m. Learn more about the festival at
