Art, culture and entertainment will collide in the Nickel Plate District on Friday, July 14th with the return of the Arts Crawl. Hosted in partnership with the Fishers Arts Council and Nickel Plate District Business Council, the event offers a self-guided tour throughout the Nickel Plate District. This year the Arts Crawl features over 30 businesses and artists, and takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. leading up to the AMP After Dark featuring Jennie DeVoe from 9 to 11 p.m. Both events are free to attend.
“The Arts Crawl is unlike any other event in the district,” stated Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness. “Not only does the event support our local economy and small business owners, but it simultaneously showcases the talented local and regional artists who call Fishers home.”
Like previous events, the Arts Crawl features musicians, breakdancers, and more traditional artwork. This year features a few exciting additions to the event, including:
- Storytelling Arts of Indiana who will share engaging stories of Indiana history,
- The Bongo Boy Drum Circle who will be performing throughout the event, and
- The Pint Cycle, which will be available for attendees to ride during the event with various drop-off locations at participating businesses.
“This year's Fishers Arts Crawl features the biggest and most diverse line-up yet,” stated Fishers Arts Council President, Daniel Kloc. “We are excited to introduce Fishers residents to nearly a dozen artists new to the event and performers, like Kenyetta' Dance Company, who have never been in the city before. There will be opportunities all over the District to interact; watch artists in action; and buy art, photography, and jewelry. It is going to be a great night."
