Gen Con Block Party

100 S. Capitol Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46225


Gen Con has expanded the Block Party from Georgia Street to include neighboring Pan Am Plaza. Check out free outdoor performances (presented as part of the Indy Keeps Creating Series) from local artists, food and beverages, and more all weekend long.

Special food & drink:

  • Sun King has brewed a special beer in tribute to the event, Genevieve. It's a Belgian/abbey-style amber ale with malty sweetness and a fruity, sweet, and spicy character. Following its release party on Georgia Street on Wednesday at 5 pm, you'll find it at the Block Party and at the downtown taproom.

  • Harry & Izzy's has created the Dragon’s Breath 🔥 burger. It’s topped with American cheese, ancho chili sauce, and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Grab it at their tent on Georgia St.

  • HotBox is serving the official pizza of Gen Con, the L.A.R.P. (live action ranch pickle). It features mozzarella, bacon, dill pickles, and red pepper flakes over a ranch sauce base.
