"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.
Hop to the Indianapolis Zoo to meet the new baby animals like giraffe Makena (pictured), see the blooms in White River Gardens, participate in a “wild” egg hunt, create themed crafts, and much more. Activities are included with regular admission of $10.95 and up. Don’t miss Indy’s largest egg hunt Saturday on the Cultural Trail. 15,000 eggs can be found at this free event.
We all know girls rock and Saturday’s all-ages festival in Fountain Square showcases and celebrates Indy women building an inclusive music community. See more than 20 bands for just $15 ($25 at the gate) at Square Cat Vinyl and Pioneer. DJ Gabby Love sets the mood, and you’ll hear local favorites like Vocab Indy, Hanna Benn, and headliner S-E-R-V-I-C-E (pictured).
Celebrate the planet at this free festival Saturday. More than 120 exhibits will encourage visitors to think globally and act locally while teaching sustainability, protection, and conservation with a full day of activities and entertainment for all ages. Enjoy live music, food trucks, an Eco-Easter egg hunt, a beer garden for those 21 and over, and the Recycle Run 5K.
What would you risk for freedom? As a runaway slave on the Underground Railroad, you’ll experience an intense part of history as you face slave hunters and search for friends along the way. The award-winning program leaves you with a lot to think about and is offered this Friday-Saturday and again next Friday-Saturday. Tickets are $17-$20, and reservations are required.
Equal parts Arthurian legend and Monty Python canon, the musical follows inept knights in search of the Holy Grail. If you know the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow, can face killer rabbits and taunting French soldiers, and feel you wield supreme power after a watery tart throws a sword at you, come see the violence inherent in the system Saturday for $41 and up.
