Support the 500 Festival

The 500 Festival is a not-for-profit organization supported by corporate sponsorship, event registrations, program participation, and membership fees. Each year, thousands of Hoosiers and visitors participate in 500 Festival activities throughout May. Whether it’s athletes participating in the Mini-Marathon or 5K, fourth-grade students participating in the Education Program, families enjoying Indiana’s largest festival for kids, or spectators being dazzled by one of the nation’s premier parades, they were there celebrating the legacy and traditions with us!

The 500 Festival produces about 50 events and programs annually. Our corporate sponsors receive numerous benefits through these programs and events, including a VIP connection with the 500 Festival and its members, visibility at events, reach through our registrants and ticket holders, ongoing information, and a true partnership.

Whether your goal is VIP hospitality, promoting your organization, or if you’re looking for something individually crafted for your specific audience, we have opportunities!
