The Indiana War Memorial and its adjacent properties (University Park, Veterans Memorial Plaza, and American Legion Mall) will be without power on June 15. Note: The Soldiers and Sailors Monument will be open that day from 10:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m

All are welcome Nov. 9, 2019, as the Indiana War Memorials Commission and Downtown Indy, Inc. usher in Veterans Day weekend with a patriotic celebration from 4 – 7 p.m. on Monument Circle.

The event, brought to life by the Indiana National Guard, will include food, beverage and entertainment featuring local country music sensation Clayton Anderson leading up to the debut of Indy’s “Signature Salute.” This program will bask the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in new LED lighting against a video backdrop from a 240,000 lumen, 4K laser video projection system with a synchronized original score from the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Coordinated video and light projections will feature images of historic significance and military might as light illuminates the surrounding building facades and statues on the Monument. As the music crescendos, four intense beams of light will soar skyward from each quadrant illuminating Victory (atop the Monument), signaling Indianapolis as the Crossroads of America.
