Winter Happenings: Along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail

You’re invited to experience the Downtown Canal this winter!

This winter, the Cultural Trail will host the first Flurries on the Canal, a special series to promote the performing arts as a part of Indy Keeps Creating. From 1pm to 5pm, a variety of performing artists will be featured at the Walnut Street Basin (next to the Orange Bridge). And, West Fork Whiskey will be there to serve hot beverages as well! 

Participate by decorating your home or voting on your favorite winter-inspired lighting!


Indianapolis Cultural Trail, Inc. invites residents who live along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail: A Legacy of Gene & Marilyn Glick to participate in a winter lights contest.
