Circle SPARK Fest

Circle SPARK Fest was a two-day fall festival the last weekend of this past October.  It featured live music by an amazing array of local musicians, delicious food, artisan vendors, and hands-on creative activities led by Indianapolis artists. Activities also included pumpkin carving, making pottery, and lots more. The festival was free to attend and took place at the pop-up park on the southwest quadrant of Monument Circle.

New this past year: SPARK Fest’s organizers at Big Car Collaborative and Downtown Indy teamed up with UbeFest — an event that’s all about the tasty purple yam often used in desserts in Filipino cuisine called ube. UbeFest brought more than 30 food, artist, and retail vendors to the Circle for the festival. Many showcased a variety of tasty ube-based treats.
