Holiday Happenings

The holiday season is a fantastic time explore Downtown Indy's marvelous winter wonderland! Gather with loved ones and embrace this year's festive nostalgia while making new memories and traditions along the way. Downtown with its walkability, vibrant culinary scene, and year-round shopping opportunities, is the perfect place to cultivate these experiences. While Circle of Lights® shines bright for all to see, take advantage of special Holiday Happenings around our beloved Downtown.


From fine jewelry to holiday gifts, Downtown has the perfect items to fill your shopping bags. Shop on Mass Ave at Stout's Footwear or Silver in the City and then relax at one of the many great restaurants before exploring more of Downtown's local businesses. Some of those hard to find gifts are available at unique places like Downtown Comics, or one of the many different museum gift shops.


During the holidays, dining Downtown is a great way to celebrate and bond with family and friends. Take your out of town guests to sample cocktails at Hard Truth's Bottleworks bar, or surprise the kids with handcrafted treats at Gordon's Milkshakes. Support local restaurants like Bluebeard and Livery and discover other hidden gems as you create your own masterpiece on Downtown's holiday canvas. This is truly the time to "choose your own adventure!"
