Did you know this year marks the 47th annual Broad Ripple Art Fair? Broad Ripple’s first art fair was held in a private home in 1971. From there, the fair was held in the streets of Broad Ripple, before being moved to the grounds of the Indianapolis Art Center.
Today, the annual event draws around 22,000 visitors over the course of the weekend, featuring more than 225 juried artists. This year’s event will take place May 20, 10 am – 6 pm and May 21, 10 am – 5 pm.
As a member of the Broad Ripple business community and the Broad Ripple Village Association, we’re excited to join such a fun and family-friendly tradition this year as a new gate sponsor! Our Jiffy Lube of Indiana Brand Ambassadors are excited to greet everyone that enters through the gate on 66th St (right by the shuttle drop off and the main entrance to the Art Center.) Look for us to get some coupons and free swag. If you have kids joining you at the fair, we’ll have coloring pages to keep them busy for a few minutes before dashing off to the next fun activity.
Can’t wait to see everyone there!
