As ambassadors of the 500 Festival, Princesses play a critical role in the execution of the 500 Festival’s mission to produce life-enriching events and programs that celebrate the spirit and legacy of the Indianapolis 500 and foster positive impact on the city of Indianapolis and state of Indiana.
The 33 Princesses participate in the 500 Festival’s Statewide Outreach Program, which educates Hoosiers about the history and legacy of the 500 Festival and Indianapolis 500 as well as our various events and programs. Each year, 500 Festival Princesses conduct more than 1,500 community outreaches impacting more than 50,000 people, expanding the celebration and impact of the Indianapolis 500 in a meaningful way.
500 Festival Princesses conduct many outreach opportunities, including visits to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, community celebrations, and various youth programs.
