Indianapolis in June
The popular Strawberry Festival takes place in front of Christ Church Cathedral on Monument Circle every year on the second Thursday of June. There will be a minimum of 18,000 strawberries. That’s a lot of strawberries. They have have an item called “The Works” which includes shortcake, strawberries, ice cream and whipped topping and sells for $7. Orders can also be made a la carte, with or without any of the toppings for $2 each. Entertainment begins at 10 a.m.
Fishers Freedom Festival
The Fishers Freedom Festival offers multiple activities, events and food for all ages. Held at the Roy Holland Park (1 Park Drive) just off Holland Drive & Ellipse Parkway in Fishers, this free event offers fine arts & crafts, food & business vendors, live music, 5K event, children’s tent, parades, street dance, fireworks and much more. We entertain over 50,000 attendees from all over the U.S. each year.
The Festival encourages participants to donate canned foods, baby food, nonperishable goods, disposable diapers, cleaning supplies, school supplies and/or toiletries, new toys, games, books and puzzles. Items will go to local pantries that service Fishers as well as the Festival’s “Roy G. Holland Backpacks for Kids” program.
