For 60+ years, The American Legion 500 Festival Memorial Service has been a time for the community to come together in downtown Indianapolis and reflect upon a very important holiday in the midst of racing festivities – Memorial Day. It is a weekend to remember the sacrifices made by the brave servicemen and women who perished while serving in the armed forces.

The service will begin at 3:30 on May 26 and includes the posting of colors by the Military Department of Indiana’s Joint Service Color Guard and performances by the Capital City Chorus and the Indiana National Guard’s 38th Infantry Division Band.
