Jun 15

It’s time for the annual Bloombox Festival (formerly Independent Music + Art Festival) on June 15th from 12pm to 8pm at the Harrison Center. In its 23rd year, Bloombox is a free, daylong festival held in Indy’s Old Northside neighborhood, highlighting the best independent local and regional musicians, visual artists, food vendors, and crafters.

Founded in 2002, Bloombox celebrates musicians who perform original live music and artists who create original work. As part of the Harrison Center’s Cultural Entrepreneur Initiative, high school seniors Cleo Corder and Amelia Smith coordinate this year’s festival.

Two stages along Delaware Street feature continuous music throughout the day. Rusty Redenbacher returns as emcee along with Caleb Keitt. An exciting line-up from various musical genres is in store for attendees.

The 2024 Bloombox band line-up includes:

12:00-12:30: Grace Graves
12:35-1:05: Jinx!
1:10-1:40: Wick
1:45-2:30: Saint Aubin
2:35-3:20: Akili Ni Mali
3:25-4:10: Shea Farmer
4:15-5:00: Starlite Lounge
5:05-5:50: Howie
5:55-6:40: Moon Goons
6:45-8:00: Brandon Lott

Around the Harrison Center, vendors peddle their wares. Formerly known as INDIEana Handicraft Exchange and now merged under the Bloombox brand, this contemporary craft fair consciously celebrates modern handmade goods, the relationship between creator and consumer, and local, alternative economies. It highlights local crafters and artisans and exposes Indianapolis to some of the best vendors on the national indie craft fair map.

Inside the Harrison Center, our galleries will feature work by Quincy Owens, William Denton Ray, Lindsey Lord, Faith Blackwell, Crystal Vicars, and Harriet Watson.

A variety of food trucks will provide delicious food options, and Sun King Brewery will serve locally-produced beer. ArtMix returns with its popular ice cream fundraiser featuring handmade ceramic bowls. The free roller skating rink will also return!

With support from Rockefeller Global Family Office, @Properties, Compendium, COhatch, LISC, Foundry Provisions, Renew Dental Arts, Griffy’s Art Supply, Stompbox, and Sun King Brewery.
