500 Festival Specialty License Plate

Show your Hoosier pride

Show your Hoosier pride for the magical month of May and help support the 500 Festival’s life-enriching events and programs! Available to Indiana motorists, the specialty license plate bears the 500 Festival’s iconic logo, which has come to represent the exciting, impactful traditions in Indiana during the month of May.

Our wide variety of programs and events – most of which are free and produced largely by volunteers – impact more than half a million people every year and enhance the image of Indiana by showcasing the state’s cultural, educational and social benefits to the world.

The 500 Festival will receive a $25 donation for every 500 Festival specialty plate that is purchased. The funds generated through license plate sales will go towards our youth and education initiatives.
