Calling itself “The Greatest Festival in Indiana,” CarmelFest 2017 is right around the corner. Hosted by The Rotary Club of Carmel, this annual event is one of the largest Fourth of July celebrations in the entire state. The 2017 rendition of this great event promises to be fun and exciting, and it will be the perfect holiday event for Northsider families.



Monday, July 3rd

CarmelFest starts off with a bang around 3:00pm on July 3rd in the Civic Square. In the square, visitors will find food, vendors from local businesses and arts and crafts. The KidZone will also be open at 3:00pm. Rides, games and a petting zoo will all be located within the KidZone area. There is no admission charge for the KidZone, but certain rides and other attractions may have a nominal fee. The KidZone and all the Civic Square activities will run until 10:30pm. At 7:30pm, the CarmelFest’s main musical act, The Wright Brothers Band, will take the stage. This band will perform on the Geico Gazebo Stage until approximately 10:30pm. All of Monday’s activities will end promptly at 10:30pm, and the community will begin preparing for the next day, the main day of CarmelFest.


Tuesday, July 4th

Events on the Fourth of July kick off at 8:00am. Carmel’s Freedom Run will take place, and it will start at Carmel High School. This 4.5-mile run and walk snakes through Downtown Carmel, using the Monon Trail and passing iconic structures like Carmel’s Civic Square. Registration for this race starts at just $23.00. Later, at 10:30am, the annual parade will be held. In 2017, candy will make a return to the parade. The parade will have the Colt’s cheerleaders, multiple drill teams and bands, some regional celebrities and veterans. This year, Korean War veterans are invited to participate in the parade as Grand Marshalls by committee. Contact the parade committee if you or someone you know is a Korean War veteran and is interested in participating as a Grand Marshall. By noon, most of the main CarmelFest activities will be ready and fired up for the day in Carmel’s Civic Square. They will run until about 10:30pm. The fireworks show will start around dusk, which will be about 9:45pm. Attendees away from Civic Square can tune into 91.3FM and listen to a synchronized musical performance. The fireworks will be held even if there is rain. However, the fireworks will be rescheduled if there is any kind of severe weather. Jeff Worrell, the head of the fireworks committee, promises that this year’s CarmelFest fireworks show will be the best one yet.
