"What are we going to do this weekend?" We have an answer for you! Each week Visit Indy publishes five can't-miss events for the upcoming weekend. Save yourself the trouble of checking back by getting The Weekend 5 sent directly to your inbox each Thursday morning.
One of the Madame Walker Theatre Center’s longest-running programs, Jazz on the Avenue, is a monthly evening of live entertainment from local jazz favorites, dancing, and dinner. This Friday, hear saxophonist Rob Dixon performing jazz, funk, and jam music with his trio. Admission is $10, and dinner is available for an additional $10.
Let the good times roll with gumbo, etoufee, jambalaya, hurricanes, crawfish, and beignets! If you can’t celebrate in New Orleans, the next best thing is Speedway’s party on Main Street Saturday. Come in costume to win prizes, enjoy signature drinks and N’awlins food favorites at participating venues, and party with live music. Most locations have free admission.
The young folk/pop duo is touring to support their latest album, Keep it Together. The girls started performing together in high school and caught the attention of producer Paul Mahern. The hometown audience Saturday night will love the sisters’ complex arrangements, beautiful melodies, ethereal harmonies, and warm, introspective lyrics. Tickets are $16-$18.
The Children’s Museum will be closed to guests under 21 Saturday for this annual adults-only night complete with food samples, cash bar, dancing in the Dinosphere®’s silent disco, a sneak peek at the Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience, rides on the Chocolate Slide, giant Jenga and Yahtzee, and plenty of time to explore the exhibits. Tickets are $75-$85.
Celebrate Indy’s year-round path for bicycling, running, and walking in this annual run/walk Saturday. The gorgeous views of downtown will chase away your winter blues on either a 4- or 8-mile course. Registration starts at $25. If you’d rather stay inside but still want to support the trail’s winter weather removal mission, you can pay the registration cost and receive a t-shirt.
