presented by Citizens Energy Group

As a nonprofit organization, the 500 Festival relies on a dedicated team of thousands of volunteers to ensure our events and programs enrich the lives of half a million people every year. Working together in true Hoosier spirit, our volunteers help create an exciting and impactful community-led road to the Indianapolis 500. The 500 Festival is grateful for the devotion and enthusiasm of our volunteers every year.
